OPP to use high-tech 3-D technology to try to solve cold case

The OPP is hoping to re-invigorate the investigation into a cold case from almost 40 years ago.

Officials say they will use 3-D facial reconstruction technology to try to identify human remains found in Algonquin Park in 1980.

Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner J.V.N. (Vince) HAWKES will be joined at a news conference tomorrow by Detective Inspector Rob MATTHEWS of the OPP Criminal Investigations Branch, Forensic Anthropologist Dr. Kathy GRUSPIER of the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service and the OPP’s Forensic Artist/Reconstruction Analyst, Provincial Constable Duncan WAY.

It’s unclear which case this is but Police say more details including a 3D image of the victim will be released Wednesday.
