Post Mortem Facial Imaging

Postmortem facial imaging is the process of using a software-driven solution to create the faces of unidentified human remains.

During this process, the forensic facial imaging experts combine their artistic skills with digital tools to develop media-ready images that law enforcement investigators and other organizations can use to generate leads about the person’s identity.

There are two popular methods for creating postmortem images, and both have proven to be effective in helping solve cold-case murders and suspicious or unattended deaths.

Facial Approximation/Skull Reconstruction: Soft-tissue or landmark facial features are constructed onto a skull to approximate the facial appearance of an unidentified deceased person as they may have appeared in life. This facial reconstruction, when supplemented with the latest DNA profiling information, becomes an even more powerful identification tool.

Our forensic facial artists use a combination of traditional drawing techniques with the latest available photo editing and 3-D sculpting software. Using information supplied by medical experts and scientists, we can approximate a person’s appearance in both two-dimensional (from skull photographs) and three-dimensional formats (3D laser scanning or CT scan files).

Post-mortem Identification: It involves repairing photographs of an unknown deceased person with soft-tissue trauma or other facial injuries by our forensic facial imaging experts. Traditional artistic methods are blended with popular photo-editing software programs to provide law enforcement agencies with media-ready facial images that can help lead to the identification of the unknown.
