Question by Johny D: Identifying a house burglar with a partial CCTV image. please help.?
My house was robbed a couple of days ago, as the thieves poisoned my dog and dragged it by a rope on its neck down the road.
They then entered the house taking the keys and stealing a car(not insured for theft), money and a couple of laptops, that is still with my parents and brother asleep.
My question is, if I we have a good quality CCTV photos, where the profile (one side of the face of one of the scumbags is shown, can the other side of the face be put by symmetry, so that we can see the face. This happened overseas and the police does not have such equipment.
Who do I need to contact in the US who has this kind of software and experience for assistance. Private detective? I am in Virginia right now.

Faces are not symmetrical. You can prove this yourself by taking a picture of yourself, and holding a mirror perpendicular in the center of your face. Compare your right and left sides, you will see two different people.
For this reason, the picture will serve a better purpose being left as is.
