Shoreline- King County’s Regional Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) identified the suspect in Shoreline Sexual assault by using new palm print technology.

An AFIS examiner recovered the palm print from a vanity in the victim’s bedroom. “This new palm AFIS is amazing”, said Sheriff spokesperson Cindi West. “Without the new system this predator might have been on the street longer.”

The AFIS section will give a briefing to the media tomorrow, December 9th at 1:30 PM. The briefing will be held in the conference room, 4th floor, at the King County Courthouse.
