MERIDEN — A nationwide database has provided solid leads to the possible identity of a man killed on Interstate 91 here in 2008, according to police.

Law enforcement officials hope finding such leads in the Department of Justice's National Missing & Unidentified Persons System, known as NamUs, will become more common.

Toward that end, about 80 members of law enforcement got training on how to use the database Tuesday at the state police academy. Agencies such as the state Office of the Victim Advocate, Division of Criminal Justice and Police Officer Standards and Training Council acted as host.
