An  identification is  only possible if people work together as a team. 

It takes the expertise of many people, from different fields, to accurately reconstruct the face of a person. From the Investigator who worked the crime scene to the Anthropologist who examined the bones, or the Odontologist who studied the teeth... each person's role fits another piece to the puzzle in finding someone's identity. 

Cases  are solved because dedicated professionals believe in not letting someone stay a john or a jane doe.

Leon's story

Leon Danker was born in Sioux City, Iowa, on Halloween in 1950. He became a skilled mechanic in high school and opened his own shop after graduating in 1969. The only notable event after that was his brief marriage, less than one month, before his abrupt departure from everyone. The last contact he had with his family was in 1978 when he called them from Colorado asking for money to get him back home. Fifty dollars was wired and they never heard from him again… 

Who is Jane Doe?

On June 29, 2001, firefighters responded to a fire in a dumpster in Sacramento, CA. When the flames were extinguished they discovered the charred remains of a young female in her late teens/early 20's, possibly Caucasian with some African ancestry. Her nose had been broken and healed years earlier. Her teeth were well cared for - her back molars had sealant and she may have been through orthodontics.
