    I think these drawings look so ridiculous because witnesses exaggerate what they see, turning the culprit into a karikature in their mind.

    "Yeah, he had reeeeallly squinty eyes, and uh, scraggly hair. Yeah scraggly. Mouth was small... no, smaller. Yeah, like that'...etc.

    I think it's a natural psychological reaction but I'm no expert on that.


    That said, some of these drawings are beyond ridiculous.

    Yep.

    "In order to recognize a famous person in a caricature, we must match the information in the percept (our mental impression) to our memory’s stored representation of the person. Interestingly, we usually recognize a well-drawn caricature more rapidly than a realistic drawing for several reasons.


    First, we store the visual attributes of a face in memory, possibly as an image or as a group of rules. Seeing the exaggerated features in a caricature seems to closely match what we have stored in memory, probably because the distinguishing features are what makes the face unique. When what we perceive matches our memory store, we recognize the caricature."Source

    Woman robbed, sexually assaulted in residence

    By Steve Lyttle and Cleve R. Wootson Jr.

    Police released composite sketches of three men they say sexually assaulted a woman inside her east Charlotte apartment while ransacking her home Friday morning.
    The attack happened shortly after 7:30 a.m. at the Summit Ridge Apartments, on Farm Pond Lane.

    According to police, two men entered the apartment through a back window, then made two men and a woman inside the apartment go into a closet.
    The men let a third man into the home through the front door.

    Two of the men then took the woman out of the closet and sexually assaulted her, while the third attacker went through the apartment and took a number of items, police say.
    Police say the attack wasn't random. One of the victims, they say, was targeted because of his "prior involvement in illegal activity," according to a police press release.

    One of the victims was arrested and police expect to charge him in connection with trafficking heroin, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Spokesman Office Robert Fey. Police were trying to confirm the name he gave to officers. Investigators are not sure whether the three suspect ran or drove away.

    Police provided these descriptions of suspects:

    One was a dark-skinned black male, about 6-foot*-2 or 6-foot-3, age 23 or 24, wearing dark clothes.
    Another was a black male, about 5-foot-10 and thin with long hair, wearing loose clothing with a shirt over his face.
    The third was a black male of medium build with a round face and short hair, wearing black sunglasses and a baseball hat.
    Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 704-432-TIPS, or contact Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.

    Haven't seen this guy?

    Probably because he doesn't exist.
    "A young woman told police last month that she was the victim of a brutal sexual assault near Boise State University and the Greenbelt.

    But now authorities say the assault on Oct. 10 never happened."Source

    He does look a bit like the cover of Stephen King's Skeleton Crew though.

    I was reading about a disappearance of a teenage boy named Daniel Morecombe in Australia back in 2003 when I came across a sketch not by a police artist but by a psychic who has dreams and then sketches what he sees. In the proud psychic tradition of keeping it vague:

    Which apparently bears a startling resemblance to the actual police sketches of some person of interest though I don't see it.

    I guess they both have two eyes and some hair.

    He should be easy to find with a tattoo of "Mom" seeing as we say "Mum" in Australia, so the Police just need to look for an American kidnapper or one who can't spell.

    Daniel Morecombe's alleged abductor/murderer Peter Cowan was arrested and here's the helpful Court sketch. I love how they black out the eyes; it makes ALL the difference LOL
