I've just seen the press report about the Corstorphine Hill murder as they've anmed the victim in that really striking photo and arrested a relative.

I don't want to look at whether they are guilty or anything, I was just amazed at how accurate the artist's impression was compared to the photo released of the victim.

Yes, although in this case it wasn't an artists impression but the work of facial reconstruction experts at the University of Dundee. I expect this is the way forward in cases like this in the future.

That is an amazing likeness. There hasn't been much coverage of the case in England, in the sense that you would have to go looking for it. I believe it was on Crimewatch but I didn't see that. I'm glad the victim has been identified. I hope the people who used the facial reconstruction techniques take a great deal of satisfaction in their work.

It's an unbelievable likeness but having seen the facial reconstruction in Dundee on a documentary it's quite amazing what they can do. It's creepy as hell to know she was up there for a while and her son lived at the foot of the hill too. sad Poor women.
