    Create a 4- to 5-page report in Microsoft Word document that covers the investigation and the effects of the case on the community with regards to the following points:

    Considering the profile you proposed in the Week 3 Assignment 2, are there any adjustments to be made at this point, or was that profile the correct one? Justify your response with examples.
