    Use of this technology...

    The bodies of 25-year-old Candra Alston and her 3-year-old daughter Malaysia Boykin were found inside their home at the Brook Pines Apartments in Columbia on Jan. 9, 2011.
    "We're very hopeful this composite could be the thing that prompts someone to come forward," [Mark Vinson, a cold case investigator with the Columbia, S.C., Police Department] said.

    Let's hope it solves some unsolved murders!!!

    Those composite pictures all look the same but the people are very different... But the features were pretty spot on.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.
