“Modern-day investigative techniques associated with complex cases of missing persons, especially children, the recovery of unidentified human remains, or the production of composite drawings of suspects, have evolved into a very important aspect of modern-day forensics.
Diana Trepkov’s publication, Faceless, Voiceless, represents a unique and very insightful overview of both her artistic talent as well as her deep sense of caring for the plight of victims.
Overall, Faceless, Voiceless is a truly informative reproduction of personal and professional accounts of struggles and accomplishments that highlight Diana’s pursuit of her chosen profession as a forensic artist with an unselfish determination to simply make a positive difference in people’s lives.”

“Imagine saying good-bye, walking away from a loved one, not having the slightest idea it could be forever, never knowing where they went, with whom they crossed paths, whether they’re alive or deceased. It is the heartbreaking reality for many families connected to the more than 2,300 people who go missing in the United States each day. Through her impassioned work as a forensic artist, Diana Trepkov allows the faces of the missing to be seen again, often decades after they vanish. Diana’s age-progression sketches come to life not only because of her careful consideration for anatomical nuances, but also because of her careful consideration for the human heart.”

“Diana Trepkov uses her forensic art techniques to bring life to the faces of those that died without their identity. Her skilled drawings allow agencies to use her reconstructions in a public forum in order to help generate leads that can ultimately restore the name to the decedent. Diana’s dedication and perseverance allows these victims to be returned to their families and laid to rest.”
