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

‘Serial’: Why Adnan Syed’s Case Matters In State’s Attorney For …

The popular podcast “Serial” is now raising the stakes in the State’s Attorney for Baltimore race.

Ivan Bates, who is challenging incumbent Marilyn Mosby, says he would not retry Adnan Syed — whose alleged wrongful conviction is the focus of “Serial” — for the 1999 murder of his high school ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee.

Mosby has not said whether she would retry Syed, who now has a national movement of supporters saying he was wrongly convicted. Another challenger in the race, Thiru Vignarajah, has worked as the lead prosecutor against Syed in a series of appeals that would keep him in prison.

Bates told Rolling Stone he wouldn’t retry Syed because central points of the state’s case have been shown “to not be reliable.” 

He pointed to cellphone tower data that was used in court to prove Syed was near the murder site. In “Serial,” reporter Sarah Koenig laid out how that type of data has been proven unreliable, in years
