So I have had my DNA done several times and thought it was neat however the future of its purpose could have another agenda. NAHHH, Thats crazy thinking and not normal until today where I read about this California case.Now im glad the "genealogical website was used for good in this instance but I think it will open doors.....https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-new...deangelo-fights-dna-collection-effort-n870981

If any of my kin folk are serial rapists or murderers, please use my DNA to nail them to the wall. You have my permission.

In the late 80's, in the city where we lived until retirement, in the snow zone, a high school girl was found in her car in a major local shopping center. No clues until this year. The detective who inherited the cold case after the original detective retired read the California case. The killer's blood was all over the steering wheel, and they kept good samples.Yes, they found him. An old man now, he lived 65 miles from the shopping center and was by all counts a good citizen. No real behavior problems in his life, except of course stabbing a beautiful young girl to death nearly 40 years ago.
The retired detective when he read the California case called the new guy to make sure he knew about it, and was told, "Already working on it."
.
In the USA, a man in his 60's convicted of a cold case will probably die in prison. Here in Mexico, they believe in rehabilitation so after 40 years of avoiding criminal conduct, a judge might decide he has been rehabilitated and set him free after a short time. Not guaranteed, but possible.

I realize DNA data bases really will continue to be used to both exonerate innocent men in jail as well ad catching the guilt. Isn't that using DNA for justice at its finest?
