Answer preview

Proposed evidence to collect includes body fluids: semen, saliva and blood, fingerprints, DNA, and gun residue from the crime scene. The motives for killing the victim, given that she is a young female, could be love gone sour. The victim could have been raped and murdered, and our focus will be on determining whether her clothes are intact and the presence of semen (Nat & Hk, 2019). If there are gunshot wounds, the focus will be on checking the existence of gunshot residue. Another vital thing we will look at is if she was killed elsewhere and dumped at the river bank or killed there. For this, the focus will be on the presence of footprints.
