It may be one of the coldest cases the Chicago police department has ever investigated. Officers are trying to learn more about "Sue", the Field Museum's T-Rex.On Saturday they scanned Sue's skeleton using the department's new high-tech, laser scanning equipment.

Besides uncovering new information about the giant 65 million year old dinosaur, doing the scan was a way to train officers on the new equipment.

Officers collected information from a number of spots. Experts will put that all together to create a 360-degree image. They say they think the scan will provide new information about Sue such has how she moved.
