Facial comparison/analysis, within a legal context, concerns assessing the possible identity of an individual using scaled and aligned photographic images or by demonstrating morphologically comparable features.
Civil and criminal investigators, private individuals and collectors may submit photos for expert evaluation by Michael W. Streed, SketchCop® Solutions’ facial identification expert.
Michael has received over 100 hours of specialized training in forensic facial comparison & analysis conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Ideal Innovation’s Face Center of Excellence and MorphoTrak.
He has compared & analyzed facial photographs of celebrities, sports figures, murder victims and alleged organized crime figure submitted by collectors, authors and the entertainment industry.
In 2015, he was asked by the History Channel to evaluate and compare photographs of John and Clarence Anglin for their documentary – Alcatraz: Search for the Truth. The brothers escaped from the prison in 1962 with fellow inmate Frank Morris. For decades they were presumed dead. It was Michael’s expert analysis changed the course of the investigation.
