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

Daughter Of Victims of Golden State Killer Faces Suspect Joseph DeAngelo For First Time

A woman whose mother and stepfather were allegedly bludgeoned to death in 1980 by the Golden State Killer faced the suspect for the first time in a Sacramento court Monday.

Jennifer Carole told ABC News that alleged serial killer Joseph DeAngelo “looked just like an old man.”

“From his orange Crocs to his orange outfit, his shoulders are sagging, he had whiskers on his face,” she said.

But as feeble as the 72-year-old DeAngelo appeared, Carole said she believes there is evil under his surface.

“He looked incredibly ordinary, which I think is the part that all of us are struggling with,” she said, referring to the families of other victims. “From the outside, he looks particularly ordinary and yet we know on the inside there’s a monster there.”

DeAngelo was arrested last month and has been charged with 12 murders across California from the 1970s and 1980s, including Charlene and Lyman Smith, Carole’s parents.

Golden State Killer Suspect Joseph DeAngelo Watched His Little Sister Get Raped, Report Says

Golden State Killer suspect Joseph DeAngelo, who is accused of a crime spree including dozens of rapes, watched his own younger sister get raped by two men when they were children, according to a report.

Jesse Ryland, a son of DeAngelo’s sister Constance, told BuzzFeed News Friday that DeAngelo witnessed the rape when he was 9 or 10 and his sister was 7. The rape happened in an abandoned warehouse on an Air Force base in Germany, Ryland said.

“That’s pretty crazy for a kid to see his sister be violated,” he said.

Constance died from cancer last year, and Ryland said she told him about the rape before her death.  Ryland hinted that witnessing the rape could have led, in part, to the rapes and murders that his uncle is accused of committing. 

“Maybe that was the start of Joe going wacko,” he said. 

Kenneth Ryland Sr., Jesse’s father, told BuzzFeed News that his wife never mentioned the

Man Accused Of Sex With Utah Teen Is Now A Suspect In Her Murder

Police believe a man who allegedly had sex with a Utah teen girl in 2017 is the person who brutally murdered her last week.

Shaun French, 24, was arrested Wednesday in Colorado after a nationwide manhunt for three counts of third-degree felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. Police said he is a suspect for the killing of 15-year-old Baleigh Bagshaw, though he has not been charged for her death. He has been jailed on a $500,000 bond.

Bagshaw was found dead in her Salt Lake City home Monday after she had called her mom upon returning from school. Bagshaw’s mother heard her screaming and being “violently attacked” before the line went dead, Salt Lake City Police Sgt. Brandon Shearer said.

Shearer added there was “quite a bit of evidence” for the girl’s murder “widely spread throughout the home and throughout the area.” No further details about her killing have

Toronto Van Attack Suspect Alek Minassian, Linked To Incel Community, Hit With Three More Attempted Murder Charges

The man accused of mowing down pedestrians in Toronto last month got slammed with three additional attempted murder charges Thursday.

Alek Minassian now faces 10 charges for murder and 16 for attempted murder, reflecting the death and injury tolls from the April 23 rampage.

Minassian stood with arms by his side and said nothing during a brief video appearance in court Thursday, according to the Associated Press. He did not enter a plea.

Minassian had described himself as an “incel,” slang for an online community of men who consider themselves involuntarily celibate. The subculture often veers into misogyny, with some members such as Minassian praising Elliot Roger, who went on a killing spree in 2014 because he said women would not have sex with him.

Of the 10 people Minassian killed in his van attack, eight were women. 

Before the attack, a post appeared on Minassian’s Facebook page calling Rodger a “Supreme Gentlemen” and saying the incels would
