Forensic Art: Identifying the Living and the Dead.Tuesday May 4, 2021
6:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Are you a fan of the Investigation Discovery channel and shows such as Forensic Files? How do police solve missing person cases? Join Michigan State Police Lieutenant Sarah Krebs to discuss her work as a forensic artist. Forensic art is any art that aids in the apprehension or conviction of a criminal offender or helps identify unknown deceased persons. Detective Krebs will explain how her evidence-based drawings and three-dimensional reconstructions aid in the investigation of unidentified remains, the apprehension of suspects, and the resolution of missing person cases.
Registration and an email address are required to receive the Zoom meeting ID and password. This information will be emailed to registrants.
Sarah is a graduate of Michigan State University’s Anthropology Program and has spent her nearly 20- year career with the Michigan State Police, most of which has been in investigations, heading the Missing Persons Unit. In 2010, Lt. Krebs founded “Missing in Michigan” a 501c (3) non-profit agency that liaisons with the families of missing persons, law enforcement and the media to bring Michigan’s Missing Persons home.
