Before and After Quiz – True Crime Edition

I think most of you trivia fans know how “before and after” questions work in a trivia game. Answers to two different questions are combined into one long answer, such as:

“Name of Darth Vader’s son and name of CBS series running from 1993 to 2001 starring Chuck Norris.”

Which would of course be “Luke Skywalker Texas Ranger.”

Sometimes you need another look at a body that’s already been buried – one of my favorite words – “exhume.” It just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?

My quiz is going to be just like this – except one half of all answers will involve words, phrases people commonly associated with true crime. Have you watched a lot of CSI, Forensic Files, Murdoch Mysteries of Cold Case Files? Have you read a lot of true crime stories? Read on to see how you do (answers will be in the comments):

1. American actress known for an iconic 1950s TV series and the scientific study of projectiles, bullets and firearms
