I've been on vacation hiatus but am back now and looking forward to adding many more cases this week! I will also be focusing on adding some cases that were worked on by acclaimed forensic artist Tricia Blair. Also very soon I will begin featuring highlighted cases, starting with the case of "Lyle Stevik," one of the most well-known unsolved identification cases. "Lyle" is currently one of a handful of cases being worked on by DNA Doe Project, the organization recently responsible for assisting with the successful closure to the "Buckskin Girl" case.
While I was in London, the East Area Rapist was finally brought to justice. I never thought I would see this day, just as I never thought I would see Buckskin Girl's name revealed. I'm inspired by the momentum we have going in identification but truly hope all parties, including the public, are doing their due diligence as far as understanding how the use of DNA in these cases is concerned.
On that note, I'm including a link to a helpful Citizen's Guide to Rights on Forensic DNA Collection published by the Council for Responsible Genetics:
