Durham Regional Police investigators have released facial reconstruction images in an attempt to identify a female whose remains were found near Highway 401 in Clarington in October 2006.
The images of computer-generated models as well as a clay reconstruction model are attached. They have also been added to the O.P.P.’s Project Resolve website at www.missing-u.ca.
On Friday October 27, 2006, a citizen notified the Durham Regional Police (DRP) they had located a human skull while walking in a field near the South Service Road and Holt Road in the Municipality of Clarington, Ontario. This area is located near the entrance to the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station; which is located south of Highway 401 in the Region of Durham.
An extensive search of the area began, involving the DRP Public Order Unit; the DRP Forensic Identification Unit; members of the Ontario Provincial Police and a Forensic Anthropologist. The search concluded on November 29, 2006.
The human remains were transported to the Coroner’s Building in Toronto, and a Forensic Pathologist completed a post mortem examination. The Forensic Identification Unit processed the other artefacts located at the scene, included a women’s digital watch; a 1980 Canadian penny; a piece of red ribbon; and a small, red, heart-shaped object.
The deceased was female, Caucasian and between 18 and 30 years of age. The investigation has not identified the deceased. The information was uploaded onto various public websites, including the O.P.P. Project Resolve, the Doe Network and Ontario’s Missing Adults. To date, no identification has been made of these Found Human Remains.
A forensic artist recently completed a 3-dimensional clay facial reconstruction of the Found Human Remains. In addition, a computer generated digital reconstruction was created and we believe this is one of the first cases in Ontario where both a clay and computer generated reconstruction of Found Human Remains has been completed.
