Since the arrest of the Golden State Killer in April of 2018, DNA and genetic genealogy has been used to solve dozens of cold cases. For law enforcement across the country, it’s considered the biggest crime-fighting breakthrough tool in decades.

Genetic genealogy takes the DNA an unknown killer left behind at a crime scene and identifies the suspect through his or her family members, who voluntarily submit their DNA to genealogy databases.
