Crime Trail in Detmold
On the crime trail in Detmold, you take over the investigative work and try to solve the fictional murder of Mariu Leyva Barragán. To solve the case, download the “crime file” of the Detmold crime trail on this page: This includes the description of the criminal case, the introduction of the suspects and an overview of the evidence that has already been found.
You decide for yourself which clues you want to follow first and thus independently determine the order in which you visit the locations. From place to place, the evidence can become more solid as further clues are added. But beware: Things that are clear at the beginning become unclear later or vice versa. The person who fits the evidence, who has a motive and no watertight alibi, is the perpetrator.
This is what you need for a successful investigation
- The crime file. To keep a good overview, we recommend that you print out the crime file and take a pen with you to take notes.
- A mobile phone with an internet connection. You will also need to send text messages along the way to get more clues.
- The warrant code you received by email with your order confirmation. You can use it to convict the perpetrator.
- Good intuition and joy in discovering the old town of Detmold and the Palaisgarten.
Early one Monday morning, guest lecturer Mariu Leyva Barragán is found lifeless by the river Werre. The first autopsy indicates that she fell with her head on an edged object. It is initially unclear whether the place where she was found is also the scene of the crime. A strange symbol resembling a rose is found on the inside of her upper arm. What happened?
In the weeks before, a large foundation fund from North Rhine-Westphalia held a selection process for a performance scholarship at the music academy. Mariu Leyva Barragán was part of the committee. Could this be a possible lead?
We hope you enjoy the investigation work in Detmold!
