WORKING TOGETHER TO SOLVE COLD CASES
Rape - Homicide - Unidentified Remains
We team up with law enforcement agencies nationwide in an effort
to clear the tremendous backlog of unsolved crimes.
Investigative Genetic Genealogy?
The sole focus of the traditional law enforcement databases, including CODIS, is to compare the crime scene DNA profile against the genetic profiles of those who are known offenders with prior convictions, or in some states, have a felony arrest looking for an exact match.
This process only utilizes twenty genetic markers and, therefore, limits the power of DNA analysis because the offender, or in some states, a very close relative must have already had DNA collected and entered into the database. This can and does lead to cases going cold, but that's where we come in.
