Thank you to a reader for this link–https://www.genengnews.com/insights/cold-cases-heat-up-with-new-forensic-dna-methods/ (Cold Cases Heat Up with New Forensic DNA Methods).
The OCCK case is the kind of difficult case that can benefit from a wealth of new technology and partnership with cutting-edge companies that can achieve what the MSP state lab or Quantico apparently cannot. If ever there was a case with poor-quality samples, it is this one.
From the article:
The transfer of advances from the life sciences and medical fields to the field of forensic DNA analysis has led to a burst of innovation. Sophisticated genetic analysis techniques are now being used to unlock difficult samples, coupled with software and database tools capable of accurately and securely connecting the information with those who need it.
We need it.
