FREMONT, Calif. -- IQ Biometrix (www.iqbiometrix.com) announced that the Sheriff's Office in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana confirmed that it used FACES composite software as one of several technologies to identify Derrick Todd Lee, arrested in May as the prime suspect in the killing of five women in south Louisiana.

Sheriff Mike Neustrom's office said, "The composite sketch developed with the FACES software was a significant aid in identifying the suspect in the killings of five women and rape of another. The composite created through witness interviews is a very close resemblance to the suspect."
