DNA Helped Catch Golden State Killer Suspect. Now, A Lab Is Trying To Crack 100 Other Cold Cases With ‘Genetic …

After DNA helped crack the decades-old cold case of the Golden State Killer, could it also lead to arrests in other unsolved cases? 

For one case, it already has. And there could be more major breaks on the way.  

The methods used to arrest Golden State Killer suspect Joseph DeAngelo — who was caught after decades on the run thanks to DNA from his trash, paired with genealogy — are already in play for other crimes that once made headlines, including the hunt for another California phantom, the Zodiac Killer.

Parabon NanoLabs, a Virginia DNA engineering company, is working with multiple police agencies to break cold cases. It has uploaded DNA data from about 100 crime scenes to the free genealogy site GEDmatch, Parabon president and CEO Steve Armentrout said. Parabon calls this process “genetic-genealogy.” 

“About 20 percent of those [100 crimes] look like they are going to be directly solvable using genetic-genealogy alone. Another 30 percent of those

Golden State Killer Suspect Joseph DeAngelo May Have Hidden Trove Of ‘Trophies’ From Suspected Crimes

Investigators believe the Golden State Killer suspect may be hiding a huge collection of grim “trophies” in a secret storage locker, recently released documents in the case show.

A gold wedding band, inscribed, “For My Angel 1/11/70.”  Multiple sets of keys. A set of flatware. Drivers licenses. A red women’s bathrobe, size eight. A wooden hairbrush.

The list of items investigators believe suspect Joseph DeAngelo — who has been charged with murdering 12 people in California during the 1970s and 1980s — took from the scenes of his alleged crimes fills page after page of the search warrant filed before his April arrest

“Through the course of the investigation and the review of the original cases, it was determined that numerous personal items had been taken during the burglaries and sexual assaults,” the search warrant reads, before listing hundreds of items — lots of jewelry, a doctors bag, a

Golden State Killer Suspect Stands In Cage As Judge Announces He Will Release Some Of His Arrest Details To Media

Golden State Killer suspect Joseph DeAngelo stood in a cage as a judge debated how much information should be released about his arrest during a hearing on Tuesday in a Sacramento courtroom. 

Video from the hearing showed DeAngelo, 72, listening intently to the judge while standing up in a cage, along with a court deputy. A sign on the cage warns others in the courtroom not to talk to the inmates inside it. One of DeAngelo’s lawyers stood next to the cage.

At DeAngelo’s last court appearance on May 14, cameras were not allowed. He was in a cage during that appearance too, but it was the first time he walked into the courthouse himself rather than being wheeled in. A sketch artist drew DeAngelo’s first standing appearance and reporters had to bring notepads instead of tape recorders. It seems that Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Michael Sweet has since changed

Convicted Killer Says He Doesn’t Regret Murdering His Cellmate — An Accused Child Molester

A California man said this week he had no apologies and no remorse for murdering his cellmate — who was an accused child molester.

Gary Dale Poole, 67, was sentenced on Tuesday to 75 years to life in prison for the April 2014 murder of Michael Stauff, 62, according to The Fresno Bee. Stauff was awaiting trial on child sex abuse charges at the time of his death, the Associated Press reported.

“Mercy was mixed with justice. He met his maker,” Poole said during the sentencing, calling the killing a public service.

His admission was surprising because he had denied his role in Stauff’s death at the Fresno County jail throughout his trial in March. He claimed that Stauff had commited suicide with torn bed sheets wrapped around his neck. The jury didn’t buy it — finding Poole guilty in less than an hour, the Fresno Bee reported.

Is Meghan Markle Related To Serial Killer HH Holmes?

Britain’s newest royal may have an infamous serial killer in her family tree.

A new television documentary on Britain’s Channel Four called “Meet the Markles” explores Meghan Markle’s life and family history. While researching the Duchess of Sussex’ family, the show’s producers discovered that one of America’s first documented serial killers, H.H. Holmes, may be a distant relative — at least according to Holmes’ great-great-grandson.

H.H. Holmes was the pseudonym of physician Herman Webster Mudgett, who confessed to 27 murders in Chicago between 1888 and 1894. Some believe he could have killed as many as 200 people after creating a house of horrors dubbed the “Murder Castle” in a building he owned, according to Biography.

The three-story, block-long building included rooms that had gas jets to asphyxiate victims. There were also trapdoors and chutes so that he could move the bodies down to the basement and dispose of them in a kiln.

High School Students May Have Uncovered A Serial Killer, The ‘Bible Belt Strangler’

A class of Tennessee high school students — who created a suspect profile for a serial killer, dubbing him the “Bible Belt Strangler” — may help make a break in a series of cold cases from the 1980s.

In Alex Campbell’s sociology class at Elizabethton High School in northern Tennessee, the students used information from the Doe Network of missing people and examined a series of real-world unsolved murders for their semester-long project.

Campbell asked his students to take a look at at least 11 unsolved killings in Tennessee and surrounding states that had become known as the Redhead Murders.

The students were able to find close similarities in six of the homicides — where the victims were all slim white women with red or reddish hair, killed between 1983 and 1985. The victims, who died by being suffocated or strangled, were found close to major roadways, according to Knox News in
