+ - How Familial DNA Testing Nabbed Alleged Serial Kil->

cremeglace writes: A quarter-century of conventional detective work failed to track down the killer responsible for the deaths of at least 10 young women in south Los Angeles dating back to the mid-1980s. But a discarded piece of pizza and a relatively new method of DNA testing has finally cracked the case, police announced last week. On 7 July, L.A. police arrested Lonnie Franklin Jr., 57, a former garage attendant and sanitation worker they suspect is the serial killer nicknamed the "Grim Sleeper." The key evidence? A match between crime-scene DNA and the suspect's son. ScienceInsider has more details.
