Liliana Pereyra's skull reconstruction, about 1985. Between 1976 and 1983, Argentina's military regime committed massive human rights violations. Nearly 20,000 men, women and children were "disappeared" (los desaparecidos), abducted, tortured, raped, and murdered, with no information provided on their whereabouts. In 1984, anthropologist Clyde Snow recruited a group of Argentinean university students who lacked training in forensics, but were eager to learn. Together, they excavated hundreds of clandestine mass graves. "Larry Levine (a forensic odontologist) uncovered a vital link, just a few weeks before she disappeared, she'd had her upper left canine extracted... Levine found the same tooth missing from the skeleton's otherwise perfect teeth... " Clyde Snow.
