Years ago I saw a case on Forensic Files where they were able to positively identify a crime victim from a murder that happened decades earlier, despite lack of DNA and dentals. There was strong circumstantial evidence in the case, but they need more to make an ID. So, they obtained a photo that had been taken of the victim face forward when she was alive. A forensic anthropologist then took a photo of the skull from the same angle and distance, and was then able to superimpose the skull over the living photo and demonstrate that all of the facial features lined up precisely, which was used as the basis for positive ID. If the skull is still available, could that not also be done for this case?
