Interested in facial composites? We are now studying facial composites. We are still at an early point in our studies, but we believe that there are significant problems created when facial composites from eyewitnesses are used and the eyewitnesses later view lineups. We are looking at how the composites, which almost never show extremely high resemblance to the perpetrator, serve to change the eyewitnesses' memories (in the direction of the composite). The composite below is of Gary Wells using the FACES program.
