    Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie announced tonight Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz will replace the late Sen. Daniel Inouye as the U.S. senator from Hawaii -- not Sen. Inouye's first choice.

    People rarely give much thought to the importance of a good police sketch - it is seen as a routine part of a criminal investigation. But in fact it is a highly skilled art - and Houston's Lois Gibson is arguably its foremost practitioner. Ms Gibson hold the Guinness World Record for being the world's most successful sketch artist, having helped to solve well over 1,000 crimes over her 30-year career. As these images show, many of her pastel paintings are remarkably accurate depictions of the criminals who were caught as a result of the sketches.
