I think that I have come up with a new crime-fighting technique. It is the use of morphing software for police sketches. Let me explain.
The police in Ottawa Canada have a problem. There is a sexual predator loose in the city. He chokes women as he sexually attacks them. He hasn't killed yet, but his escalation of attacks might cause him to do so.
There are two police sketches of him. As this serial sexual predator attacks, the police artists make a sketch. Recently the police realized that the two sketches were the same person. They published them in the online paper, looking for help from the public. After all, when serial murderer and serial killer Paul Bernardo, the husband of killer Karla Homolka was just the Scarborough rapist, the police artists created a sketch. It was on the bulletin board where Bernardo worked as an accountant trainee, and someone had penciled the word "Paul" on it because the sketch looked like him. They thought that it was a joke.
The paper published sketch 1. It looks like this:
The second police artist sketch of a second attack looked like this:
I got to thinking, that perhaps I could combine the two with morphing software. I downloaded the photographs from the online newspaper and fed them into the morphing software. This software has many features.
The first rendition was a 50/50 mix of the two sketches. It looks like this:
