The timeline for DS Lara Sund’s investigation is exactly the same as that for DI Bullet’s. At 16:48 she arrives at the crime scene to obtain an initial statement from the two eyewitnesses.
Next, you will hear an audio recording of the initial statements taken by DS Sund. As you listen to it, make a note of any evidence about the crime that you think might be useful in solving it. Remember, try to evaluate what you hear in terms of what you have learned about eyewitness memory.
Activity 2.3 DS Sund: initial statements
DS Sund also knows that time is of the essence, particularly in a case that involves kidnapping, and that getting information out to all the officers in the area is paramount.
However, she is also aware that great care must be taken when questioning witnesses and that they should not be allowed any opportunity to hear what each other remembered about the crime.
Listen to the audio recordings as many times as you like and note down the evidence you think is revealed.
The initial statements from Lila and Seth once again revealed a wealth of information about the events of the crime and also about the perpetrators. How did you get on noting down potential evidence?
