CASE BREAK 2- DNA to Catch A Killer

Description

In this mini-episode called a Case Break host Matt Johnson talks to forensic genealogist Colleen Fitzpatrick.

Colleen is a former NASA contractor with a PhD in Physics. She is a rocket scientist, a one-time JEOPARDY contestant and the founder of two non-profits who work to identify individuals through DNA.

The "DNA Doe Project" the works to identify John and Jane Does while "IdentiFinders International" works to identify murdered persons and suspect killers.

Colleen and co-founder of the DNA Doe Project, Margaret Press were gracious enough to share with me how they identify victims and became the subject of an EMMY winning report I did in Los Angeles.

Since our interview GEDmatch (the public wiki page for genealogists and police) has since changed privacy policy and require users to "OPT IN" to allow law enforcement to review uploaded DNA. Without that ability suspect killers like Joseph James DeAngelo would not be caught and cases would stay COLD.
