Go Go Gadget DNA Kit!!!

 

Since the story broke in April, a number of people have asked me how it is the police could use the DNA of regular joes to crack a cold case. Its very simple- you go online, shout Go Go Gadget DNA KIT!!!! and voila!

Also, GEDMATCH.com and some basic knowledge of genetics helps. But mostly work on your Don Adams impression.

Cheers!
