Eyewitness descriptions are essential when constructing a police lineup, as an eyewitness’s description is the basis for selecting the members of the lineup. Unfortunately, eyewitnesses’ descriptions are often vague, because eyewitnesses may fail to mention features of the culprit. We believe that vague descriptions create unfair lineups, as the lineup would fail to match for features not mentioned by the witness. To test this hypothesis, participants viewed 20 photos of suspects pulled from lineups with vague descriptions, and described the race, sex, age, size (height, weight, build), hair, and face of each suspect. Then, new framework descriptions were created using the collected data. Seventy-three participants in a mock-witness procedure then provided a basis for measuring the fairness of each lineup, viewing both the old description lineups and the new framework lineups in a within subject design. We predict that the old descriptions will have higher bias rates than the new framework descriptions. Our hypothesis was supported for the proportion score, functional size, effective size, number of rejected lineup members, and mean rank bias measures. Features not mentioned in vague descriptions can lead to unfair lineups.
