Rehydration Solution

Case Studies

1

Problem:

The forearm of a merchant marine was discovered frozen in a glacier in 1999 after his death from a plane crash that occurred in 1948. Identification of the service airman was necessary but had proved unsuccessful for nearly five years.

Solution:

KDL provided George Washington University with the identification solution to assist in the identification. After using the solution, the fingertips yielded such quality prints that the victim was clearly identifiable through fingerprint comparison.

2

Problem:

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina bodies were being discovered throughout the coastal areas. Individuals that were missing needed to be identified. The Mississippi State Crime Laboratory was in need of rehydration solution.

Solution:

KDL was able to donate their entire supply of rehydration solution to help in the identification process of individuals on the storm-ravaged Gulf Coast. This solution has been battle tested!
