The entire nation has been captivated by the gruesome Idaho college student murders. Family members were outraged at the lack of a solid suspect...until now.
Police had been tight-lipped about their investigation but confirmed over the weekend that he was tracked down by a combination of DNA tracing and investigative work.
Kohberger has no prior criminal record which means his DNA was not in any law enforcement database.
Instead, he was found through a method known as genetic genealogy - an increasingly popular and useful method of investigation where law enforcement trace suspects' relatives on ancestry websites.
CeCe Moore, Chief Genetic Genealogist at Parabon Nanolabs and the founder of DNA Detectives, who has helped law enforcement solve more than 240 crimes, did not work on the case but is widely considered to be the most authoritative expert in the industry.
John & Ken talked to CeCe Moore at length about DNA investigations and got tons of info about the various issues involved.
This is a must-listen.
