Murder in Room 6:

Innovation and critical learning experiences are happening in Mr. Hamilton’s English classes. Here is a press release to share the depth of the lesson:

Incident Type: Homicide/Burglary/Anticipatory Set
Incident Date/Time: September 18, 2019 approximately 12:30am
Location: Frontier High School, Room 6
Prepared by: Detective David Hamilton


Students in Mr. Hamilton’s English classes discovered a gruesome scene early Wednesday morning in Room 6 at Frontier High School. Teams of student detectives were dispatched to document what early indications suggest is a brutal homicide. A bent hammer, zip ties, blood, and a Motorola Razor flip cell phone were documented at the crime scene and are currently being analyzed by the Ventura County Forensics Department. Although there were no bodies at the scene and no suspects at this point, authorities are not ruling out the possibility that this is an anticipatory activity devised by a teacher before students read Roald Dahl’s “Lamb to the Slaughter.”
