    Speed Modeling Challenge #43 - CSI Murder Scene

    Speed Modeling Challenge #43 - You are a CSI and you walk into a crime scene. The first piece of evidence you see is............
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ************************************************** *******
    Rules:

    1: Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling times is essential.
    How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.

    2: Post a render of your model (min 800x600 pixels) in this thread with a wireframe.

    3: LightWave should be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug ins are allowed.

    4: You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.

    5: Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.

    **Please mention whether or not you would be happy to share the model.**

    Interesting. The fingerprint is on the inside of the matchbox but there is not a single match missing. That means that the perpetrator went for the match but did not actually touch any of them. The murderer was a heavy smoker and is trying to quit. The murderer is committed enough on his resolution to stop smoking as to reject the impulse even after such a stressful event as a murder. The number was scribbled after the murder, since the killer moved the 0 over the bloody fingerprint. The killer is clearly not a professional but was also not too nervous since the fingerprint and the writing are quite steady.

    Did I miss something?

    or the killer went to read the number on the matchbook that the vic had and went to read the number and tossed it as to no consequence to him/her

    I grew up in a really small town, and always wondered why there was a CSI Miami, New York, and Las Vegas but they never made CSI Middle of Nowhere. If there had, here's what the crime scene would look like.

    Interesting. The axe and most of the blood are on the victim's left side, with the grip facing away from the victim. That indicates that the killer was right handed.

    The blood stains above the head indicate that the killer was probably taller than the chicken. However, only the edge of the axe is stained so (s)he is probably not very strong.

    The victim is between the axe and the house. Also, the pole of the axe is facing away from the house. That indicates that the killer is not from the house. Yet, the duck was not scared away so it was someone familiar, whom the duck trusted.

    Did I miss something?

    It was actually the duck. Remember 95% of criminals return to the scene. It was apart of a turf war that had been going on for years.

    Not so much this week huh? I wish I could participate in this one. I have already thought of a few simple items to do, but I don't think I'll have the time. We have a release due out this week, and we're fighting to stay on schedule.

    I won't have time, either, and I had a good plan. You know the old cliché of a knife made of ice? I had in mind a partially-melted revolver.
