Colorado teen's 1981 murder is finally solved after 38 YEARS when cold case detective used databases on an ancestry websites to identify the killer

Colorado murder case solved after 38 YEARS after cops trace killer's DNA on ancestry

A Colorado murder mystery that baffled detectives for nearly four decades has been solved after the killer's relative uploaded their DNA to a genetic genealogy database. 18-year-old Jeannie Moore was last seen hitching a ride to her job at at convenience store in Lakewood on  August 25, 1981.  The teen's body was discovered five days later at a picnic ground in nearby Genesse Park. An autopsy revealed that Moore had been raped and that she was killed by 'several blows to the head'.

Public genealogy database is used to solve ANOTHER cold case - 45 years after a married couple were murdered in their Montana home in 1973 

Suspect named in 1973 killings after genealogy analysis

Police in Montana have solved a 45-year-old double-murder cold case. Linda and Clifford Bernhardt, (pictured left and right both aged 24), were found dead in November 1973. For more than 40 years their murders remained unsolved and without motive. DNA evidence in the case showed Cecil Stan Caldwell (inset), an associate of Linda Bernhardt, to be the person responsible - Caldwell died in 2003.

People automatically assume DNA = guilt. But DNA travels and can be transported. You sit on a chair and leave your DNA. The future crime victim comes and sits on that same chair and picks up some of your DNA on her clothes. Then you are arrested as a suspect, and your name reported in the media - even though your only crime was sitting on a bus or eating a meal in a restaurant. A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing.

The 'Wild West' of genetic privacy: New technology enables law enforcement to use DNA from sites like Ancestry.com to track down criminals by finding their relatives

[4965482-0-image-a-23_1539281975367]

It just got easier for police to use a family member's DNA to catch people like Joseph James DeAngelo, the suspected Golden State Killer, thanks to new technology that's raising privacy concerns.

Is your DNA in a police database?

Professor George Church said medical treatments could be used to alter DNA 

Arevolutionary genetic editing technique designed to repair faulty DNA could be used by criminals to evade justice, experts have said.

The Crispr system acts like molecular scissors to snip away damaged genes and replace them with healthy code and it is hoped it will one day fix genetic diseases such as sickle cell anaemia, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy.

But Professor George Church, of Harvard University, who pioneered the use of the Crispr technique, said it would be possible for criminals to use the technique to disappear from forensic databases or evade detection.

Crispr kits can now be bought online for around £150, and last year former Nasa biochemist Josiah Zayner  injected himself...

Use of DNA in serial killer probe sparks privacy concerns

Investigators who used a genealogical website to find the ex-policeman they believe is a shadowy serial killer and rapist who terrified California decades ago call the technique groundbreaking.

But others say it raises troubling legal and privacy concerns for the millions of people who submit their DNA to such sites to discover their heritage.

There aren't strong privacy laws to keep police from trolling ancestry site databases, said Steve Mercer, the chief attorney for the forensic division of the Maryland Office of the Public Defender.

"People who submit DNA for ancestors testing are unwittingly becoming genetic informants on their innocent family," Mercer said, adding that they "have fewer privacy protections than convicted offenders whose DNA is contained in regulated databanks."

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested Tuesday after investigators matched crime-scene DNA with genetic material stored by a distant relative on an online site. From there, they narrowed it down to the Sacramento-area grandfather using DNA obtained from material he'd discarded, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said.

Authorities declined to name the online site. However, two of the largest, Ancestry.com and 23andMe, said Thursday that they weren't involved in the case.
