The Pale Horse
This problem based case study sets analytical chemistry within the context of a forensic investigation of a suspicious death.
The case study operates by supplying information in the form of reports from various official agencies (police, pathologist and forensic laboratory) to groups of students. The students request analysis of the various types of evidence collected in order to determine the cause of death, mode of administration of poison and suggest the identity of the possible perpetrators.
