    Holy crap I talked with those two ladies on the phone when they were doing this research. They had a small match to a kit I administer.

    I wonder if there is any risk if someone related to you might have done any crime.....

    To clarify, they did not perform the matching on the killer, but all the news agencies are calling them for commentary. The case I spoke with them about was a different one.

    I made a topic on this subject earlier today as well.

    https://www.eupedia.com/forum/thread...%80%99-suspect

    Didn't 23andme recently allow uploading raw data files to find DNA relatives?

    https://familyhistorydaily.com/genea...ncestry-report

    All the FBI would have to do is sequence someone's DNA, convert the file to the AncestryDNA format, upload it to 23andme, and get a bunch of cousin matches. Arguably unethical, but I don't think too many people will cry about it when they use it for the high profile cases.

    Here's the story of the Buckskin girl that the DNA Doe Project (Colleen Fitzpatrick and Margaret Press) contacted me about.

    I have the surname in my tree and the Y-DNA listed in my signature. Sad.
