Turkey’s largest technology festival, TEKNOFEST, opened its doors to technology and science enthusiasts at Etimesgut Airport.
At the festival, the stand of the Criminal Department of the General Directorate of Security was appreciated.
At the stand, the “confrontation” method applied to the skulls for the identification of the corpses that became unrecognizable in the anthropology laboratory and the “forensic aging” application applied to find the missing children were explained.
Accordingly, the teams that determine whether the skeleton or bone fragments found in the forensic case primarily belong to a human, determine the gender, age and height of the person based on the bones determined to belong to a human.
The teams obtain a profile that is highly similar to the real face of the missing person by “facing” the skulls delivered to them. The resulting description provides great convenience in determining the identity of the person.
In cases such as the disappearance of a child for a long time, taking into account that the physical characteristics of the person may change, “forensic aging” is applied so that the missing person can be reached more easily.
