Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Solves a Case that Could’ve Gone Cold

The Hernando County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office was working on a homicide case. The victim had met a new acquaintance, but the victim’s family only knew him by his first name. The investigators obtained an image of the acquaintance from the family’s camera.


The detectives asked the Crime Analysis Unit Manager to identify the acquaintance. Despite the poor photo quality, the manager obtained results from Clearview AI within seconds. These included nearby arrest photos which stated the person’s full name. The first name in the arrest records matched the name given by the victim’s family.


The sheriff’s department uncovered additional evidence and probable cause and arrested the acquaintance for the homicide.


Before Clearview AI provided an investigative lead, the acquaintance was unknown to the detectives.
