Published on 10/17/2008

Activity Overview

The FBI is investigating a robbery at the research facility of a large company. The FBI believes that the robbers were employees of the company, because they were able to bypass the iris recognition security scan and gain entrance. However, a security camera was able to capture a partial image of one of the suspect's faces. Don wants to use the partial photograph to create a "mug shot" sketch. The sketch could then be compared to a database of pictures of all the company's employees.
