DNA Matching Used In Organ Attack Arrest
OGDEN, Utah — A newly unsealed search warrant explained how police were able to track down a teen accused of attacking a woman inside a Centerville Church.
Investigators used a genealogy and genomics website to link the 17-year-old suspect to the crime.
Blood left at the scene matched with a family member of the suspect.
Police then discovered a teen lived near the church.
Detectives then collected some of the teen’s lunch he threw away at school and it was a perfect match to DNA left at the scene.
He was arrested and now faces assault charges.
