Carmen Moreno of Seville, Spain has been employed as a member of a park cleaning squad in a local park for 28 years. Carmen has always been enthralled by her favorite American TV show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and has been watching the show for years.
During her routine sweep of the park, she came across a pile of tissues with blood. Police Investigation discarded the tissues as belonging to a woman who was found to have overdosed on drugs and found dead in the park. But, Carmen collected those tissues as criminal evidence is collected in the popular show. She used plastic bags and held onto those tissues and made sure they were free from contamination.
Further autopsy reports disproved the earlier results of the case. Investigations revealed that the victim had been brutally raped and murdered and did not die of drug overdose. The tissues held by Carmen, now were prime evidence in the investigation. Further DNA tests helped to nab the criminal who was a local suspect.
