Why DNA has to be re-run in cold cases given advances in technology.

Oh, and a shout out to police agencies properly cataloging and storing old evidence in murder and rape cases.  And maybe even in “suicide” cases that may be related to serial killings.

    They lost the only item with DNA in Warren in my sister’s case.

    Yes, analyze the dog hair to find specie, go to vets of that era and check files for specie

    Great. Unless they collected no DNA like in our case. No hope for us for technology advances.

    Viva DNA. That’s for sure. Rather stomach turning to scroll all those cases, though.

    Even the Wichita Police were wise enough to hold on to evidence in the hope that someday it could be used to convinct Dennis Rader, The BTK serial killer. It did, samples from 1974!!! The LE for the OCCK is akin to the Keystone Cops. On a side note, Dennis Rader’s entire family was blind sided by the truth. His daughter lives in the Detroit Metro area and has a book coming out in January detailing her story.

    M-Vac- is there any evidence which could possibly be tested? OR has it vanished “in a flood”, or whatever the hell else these sorry sacks have told the victims families and the public?
