Crime Scene Evidence Files
Kudzu Kids Investigation Day 1 — My name is Rachel McGowan, and I'm 13 years old. My friends Zach Burgess and Mel Cheever live in Oxford, Mississippi, like me and my brother, Hunter.
We were all goofing around in the Grove when we saw some men working at the old Y Building on campus. The building is being renovated, so it's off limits.
Naturally, we decided it would be cool to sneak in and look around. Harmless enough, right?
Well, we found a secret hatch under the floor of a broom closet in the Y Building. Zach reached in and came up with a bone.
Before we had a chance to inspect it, a University police officer found us and confiscated our bone.
Kudzu Kids Investigation Day 2 — My grandpa said it might help y'all help us investigate if you knew a little more about some of the places we mentioned and about me and my friends.
So Mel and I wrote up some stuff for you. Zach and Hunter helped too… sort of.
Charles Lowry biography
Kudzu Kids Investigation Day 3 — So there's this professor named Charles Lowry who's a Civil War history teacher at the university, where my dad teaches anthropology.
After we found the bone, Dr. Lowry got really interested. He called my dad and was pretty mad because he said we were "messing around his work site."
Whatever. We were just looking around.
Kudzu Kids Investigation Day 4 — So after Professor Lowry got so mad, we wanted to know why.
We tried to ask Dr. Lowry why he was so interested in the bone, but he kicked us out of his office.
So we just waited until he left, and then Zach looked through the trash in his office and found some interesting stuff.
Kudzu Kids Investigation Day 4 — While Zach was looking through Dr. Lowry's trash after the professor kicked us out of his office, we talked to the janitor who came by to clean to see if he'd seen anything suspicious.
