In April 2013, a body was found in Sumter County, and investigators turned to the USF Forensic Anthropology Lab for help in identifying it.
On this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we take a look at the forensic imaging tools the researchers used to identify that woman, and we tell you how a recent workshop at USF led by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is helping law enforcement around the world.
