FBI Sketch Artist Writes Tell-All Book About Tracking Down Criminals

A former sketch artist for the FBI has written a tell-all book about his 32 years working with the bureau, the New York Post reports.

Gene O’Donnell, who is shopping his book “Faces of Crime: Memoirs of an FBI Forensic Artist,” said he’s had a lot of bizarre experiences at the bureau, but the strangest may have been drawing a face based on visions of a psychic.

“Officially, I don’t believe that the FBI has ever really admitted to using psychics, but I can assure you that they do. Rarely, but every once in a while, the real FBI looks more like Mulder and Scully’s FBI,” said O’Donnell, referring to “The X-Files.”

O’Donnell, who retired in 2009, started working with the FBI after studying commercial art.

In one his more well-known sketches, O’Donnell helped capture the Russian handler of spy Aldrich Ames.

O’Donnell also helped sketch the face of a man who had been badly decomposed.
