FaReconsFacial ReconstructionsGetting skeletal remains identified through a skull reconstruction can help to kick start your case. There are two kinds of facial reconstructions. 3D is where clay is applied to the skull to fill out and complete the image. 2D is the version that is drawn, working from photographs taken of the skull with the markers on, to complete the image. The 2D is a faster method and depending on the circumstances of the skull, may be preferable.
DecidingGetting a Composite Done - GuidelinesWhen should I get a drawing done? Don't necessarily wait on doing a drawing until it's your last option. This guideline will assist in assessing the witness or victim's ability to describe. Composites are information-generating tools and in many instances, are never released to the public, but instead eliminate or corroborate information you already have.
