Upon first hearing that Alan Jackson would be speaking at Flintridge Preparatory School, the students were a bit skeptical. We have had our share of monotonous speakers that we feel waste two hours of our lives while the adults next to us are riveted by them.
We were shocked when a charismatic, enthusiastic man took the stage and started talking about a murder case.
We were glued to our seats for the full two hours, enthralled by the presentation. Not only did he manage to keep a room full of 400 teenagers engaged, he gave us a look into the world of forensic science. His presentation was on the Phil Spector case and how he had used forensic science to prove that Spector was guilty of second-degree murder. As he went through the evidence, he painted the same picture to the students that he had for the court.
He was able to show us how victim Lana Clarkson was incapable of committing suicide. Therefore, this made Phil Spector, the only other person in the house, the murderer.
