When was dna profiling first used
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A company in Colorado is helping authorities use a powerful tool in their effort to identify the scores of people killed by the wildfire that ripped through Northern California: rapid DNA testing that produces results in just two hours. The system can analyze DNA from bone fragments or other remains, then match it to genetic material provided by relatives of the missing. But the technology depends on people coming forward to give a DNA sample via a cheek swab, and so far, there are not nearly as many volunteers as authorities had hoped for. As of Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the inferno devastated the town of Paradise and surrounding areas, the number of confirmed dead stood at 79, and the sheriff’s list of those unaccounted for had about 700 names. But only about 60 people had provided samples to pop-up labs at the Butte County Sheriff’s office in Oroville and an old Sears building in Chico, where the Federal Emergency Management Agency set up … [Read more...] about Colorado company providing DNA technology to identify California wildfire victims

Authorities say UC Berkeley employee Roy Charles Waller, 58, of Benicia, the so-called NorCal Rapist, is responsible for at least 10 and possibly more attacks on women from Martinez to Sacramento, including one in which he posed as a trick-or-treater on Halloween night in 1996. Waller was arrested without incident Thursday near his work place in Berkeley, identified by the same genealogy database that put suspected Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo behind bars earlier this year.
