South Dakota authorities using new technology to revisit cold case

DEADWOOD, - South Dakota authorities are using 3-D technology in an effort to get the public to help them identify the victim of a homicide.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the FBI's technology has been used to develop a three-dimensional headshot of the victim.

In February 2000, skeletal remains of an unidentified man were discovered near St. Onge, a community 14 miles north of Deadwood. Authorities at the time determined the man died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Jackley says the new head shot of the victim can give the public a better idea of how the man looked before his death.

Jackley adds the facial approximation technology is presenting the opportunity for the public to help out with solving the cold case and bringing closure to a victim's family.
