Facial Reconstruction Leads To Identity Of Corpse Found In Funeral Home
The Michigan State Police (MSP) is pleased to
announce that a facial reconstruction released to the media on June 1 helped to
identify a corpse found in August 2005 at a vacant funeral home in Detroit.
Family members identified the unknown male as Jimmy Lee Adams, 64, of Detroit
after seeing news reports of the facial reconstruction.
MSP Forensic Artist Tpr. Sarah Foster used the
unidentified human skull to create a 3-dimensional facial reconstruction in
hopes someone would recognize the deceased.
"I am pleased to have been able to help bring
closure to this family and allow them to provide a proper burial for their loved
one," stated Foster.
Photos of this reconstruction and other
unidentified human remains can be found on the MSP Web site at www.michigan.gov/forensic_artists.
The MSP Forensic Artist Program is one of the
nation's only state-level teams with a network of artists available on a 24-hour
basis to assist state, county or local police agencies at no cost to them.
