I really want to write an EPQ, but I get distracted very easily so I want to pick a topic that I'm interested in. At university, I'm thinking about studying psychology and criminology so I was thinking about writing about the JonBenet Ramsey case. Would this be a good idea where I can talk about the most likely scenario or would it limit the essay as I can't exactly conclude on who killed her as it is unsolved? And if it is bad, what other topics could I write about?
For example, doing a question like ‘was the police investigation into the death of JonBenet poorly managed’ or something similar (and worded better, that’s just off the top of my head!) would allow you to actually look into the investigation, evaluate methods used, critique areas that weren’t done well etc, while still being linked to the case as a whole.
If you’re interested in true crime, there’s always interesting work in topics like the psychology of serial killers, or something more sociological like how do childhood factors influence if a person will become a criminal. Just make sure your question gives you room to do independent research and come to a conclusion based off that
