About IdentifyLA and the FACES Lab

Anthropologists at the LSU Forensic Anthropology and Computer Enhancement Services (FACES) Lab, working together with scientists at a Louisiana Criminalistics laboratory, began the LA Repository for Missing and Unidentified Persons Information Program with the aim of providing a database that will be used to help identify and resolve Louisiana's cases of unidentified remains and missing persons. The law, Louisiana Act 227 (LA Rev Stat § 15:651-662), can be downloaded in PDF format here.

With the cooperation of law enforcement agencies throughout the state, the goals of the project are to:
  • Systematically visit law enforcement agencies throughout Louisiana to collect data on unidentified remains and missing persons.
  • Provide a centralized location for data on unidentified remains and missing persons from Louisiana.
  • Include biological and DNA profiles on unidentified remains and missing persons from Louisiana at no expense to law enforcement agencies.

Law Enforcement: Please contact us if any information on this website needs to be updated or if you would like to add new cases.
