The oldest case solved so far with genetic genealogy:
Thank you to a reader who sent this with the message: There is always hope.
The detective who solved this 52-year-old murder credited the professionalism and attention to detail shown by the original detectives in evidence collection and storage.
You would think in a case of the magnitude of the OCCK crimes that evidence collection and most certainly storage would have been top notch. Except that evidence went missing (Busch) and some was misfiled and never even compared for decades. I don’t think storage was a big concern when they shut this thing down. “Walk away” seemed to be the approach. I bet if we were allowed into the storage shed where Tim’s skateboard, Jill’s bike and other evidence and information sits unorganized and uncategorized, it would bring us to our knees like a gut punch. Hopefully the magic hairs are viable for additional DNA testing. And hopefully family members of the owner of these hairs are as cooperative as the family described in this video.
