Fingerprints Identify helps identify even the deceased
Fingerprints Identify helps identify even the deceased

As a last resort and with the authorization of the coroner and the Mississippi State Crime lab, one of the investigators working on the case made a call that Saturday to AD&S, Inc. (a local biometric company) and requested a portable fingerprinting system in an attempt to get fingerprints of the decedent for identification purposes.  The local company responded with their portable system.  With the coroner’s assistance, one of the company’s expert technicians was able to capture a full set of fingerprints from the decedent.  Bingo!!

Once these fingerprints were made available to the MBI (Mississippi Bureau of Investigation) they transmitted these fingerprints to the State and FBI and had an identity within minutes.

Families and friends of every person deserve to know “what happened” to their loved one, rather than wonder for years why they “disappeared” without notification.
