 Identities of Dead Victims on US Mexico Border Reconstructed Using 3D Printing

Migrants trying to cross US-Mexico border are often apprehended and lose their live during the effort, and over 1000 unidentified in Pima Country, Arizona, were recently found. However, using the 3D Printing Technology by FARO, a 3D tech company, a group of students led by Joe Mullins from New York Academy of Art, have been working to reconstruct skulls of 8 such men. Once the reconstructions are complete, they are photographed and entered into National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUS).
