Frank Bender has passed away from Mesothelioma at the age of 70. The well-known forensic sculptor battled the disease for nearly 2 years, but was unable to overcome his early years of asbestos exposure.
Before beginning his career as a forensic sculptor, Bender worked for years in the engine room of a Navy ship. This is where it is believed that Bender was exposed to the asbestos that led to his Mesothelioma diagnosis.
Bender may be best known for his contribution to the case of John List, who had disappeared for years after killing his family. The head bust that Bender designed of what List might look like 18 years after the murders led to List’s eventual capture and conviction.
