The University of North Texas Center for Human Identification – Department of Anthropology redefined the biological profile on this homicide victim. Based upon the revised biological profile, a new facial approximation has been prepared by forensic artist Michael McNicholas. The previous facial approximation was prepared by Frank Bender 19 years ago in 1994 and remains on display at the Delaware State Police Museum, Dover, Delaware.
