I don’t know if any of you have seen this new show on Tuesday nights on ABC. It is called Genetic detective. I will have to give you a general idea of show as it is a bit technical. The host started her career using this technique to help adopted people try to find their birth parents. By happenstance LE learned about her and long story short she began trying to find suspects based on the available DNA. The difference is she is not trying to match DNA to known suspects or those in Codis. With DNA see can create two networks based on the DNA. She follows these up the chain until she can find a common ancestor i.e. a couple six generations back. From there she goes back until she can identify a suspect. She has been pretty succesful. Once again my explanation is lacking some but this could possibly help our case. Anyway give it a look. Is on at ten o’clock out here on the west coast.
