Another one down. Next!

A Geelong woman brutally raped in her own home lived without justice for three decades.

Mush, who is now 56, wrapped stockings around the woman's face and in her mouth to quieten her, removed her nightie ...

Technology caught up with Michael 'Mick' Mush.

His now 77-year-old victim is finally seeing her attacker face court over the ordeal she went through on November 22, 1985

Can't help but wonder if security agencies have been sitting on this information as an investigative tool until there's enough of the population sharing their genetic profiles over these open source genealogy sites to ping anybody. Just waiting until that horse has well and truly bolted.

Makes me a bit uncomfortable actually.

This podcast out of the US on Australia's Claremont Serial Killer suggests this is how he was caught and is the reason behind all the secrecy. Investigators want to keep exploiting it for as long as possible before red tape and legals shuts it down.

It's an industry.

CeCe Moore’s company has been helping police departments solve cold cases by uploading crime-scene DNA to public genealogy databases.


CeCe Moore, head of a genealogy unit at Parabon Nanolabs, predicted that “dozens” of cases will be solved in coming months in the US.

The company has already helped US police forces identify suspects in nine grisly crimes since last spring. It does so by using crime-scene DNA to locate relatives who have uploaded their own profiles to a consumer genealogy service.

Another cold case solved, not sure if DNA has played any part or why all of a sudden the police have started re-investigating this case after 45 years.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-18/cold-case-dig-underway-in-south-australia/10264698


Husband, now 70, has now confessed and shown police where her body was buried. He has been charged with her murder.

Seems there are a lot of cold cases being solved recently, hopefully lots more to come

This one is very close to home as my Wife is from Maitland and grew up less than a minutes walk from the house in question, we walked past daily for years and even lived opposite for a brief period and i know the neighbours well.
Locals suspected that she was buried on the premises since day 1 and despite previous investigations SAPOL never dug before now, so sad as it could have been over for the family decades ago.
My Father inlaw use to cut the lawns for one of the tennants about 20yrs ago and it sends a shiver down your spine knowing that she was only a few feet below him all those years ago but no one knew for sure.
It always was a creepy place, when i first moved up there to work at age 15 around 27 years ago an old guy who use to scream at the footy on telly lived there and it would scare the shit out of you if he launched into a rant as you passed by.

Remains have now been found, sad it took so long, I feel for the daughters.

Was that the guy that used to scream at his telly the one that has been arrested do you think? Did the husband stay in Maitland? Apparently a current tenant said on radio yesterday the backyard of the house has a bit of a creepy feel to it and she never goes out there.

Curious how a person could live with themselves for 45 years.

No, the guy who screamed at the telly wasnt the man arrested.

This case was shocking. Eight year old April Tinsley was abducted and murdered in a sex attack thirty years ago, the details are appalling. Her killer taunted the police leaving messages in various places and notes on little girls bicycles terrorising neighbourhoods for years. They couldn't catch him until .. DNA.

Police connected him to the homicide by using DNA from the scene of the murder and from the taunting messages, and inputting them into a genealogical database. That led investigators to two men: Miller and his brother, according to a probable cause affidavit.
DNA from Miller's garbage matched DNA from the crime scene and from the taunts, and when police brought him in for questioning, he confessed to the disturbing killing, the affidavit states.

Getting heaps of them.

Christine Franke was 25 when she was killed on Oct. 21, 2001.

She was studying education at the University of Central Florida and working as a bartender and waitress at Cigarz bar at Universal CityWalk. That’s where she was last seen alive: leaving work about 4 a.m. after a double shift.

On Friday — 17 years later — Orlando police detectives made an arrest: Benjamin L. Holmes, 38, is facing a first-degree murder charge

Holmes was identified after Parabon Nanolabs, a Virginia company working with the Orlando Police Department, ran a DNA sample from the scene of the crime through an open-source genealogy database and identified three people believed to be distant cousins of the killer, Det. Michael Fields said Monday.

This one is more local in Victoria. She provided police with a saliva swab over an unrelated minor matter and was arrested for the bludgeoning murder of a man thirteen years ago. It was a really vicious murder and she was only 23 years old. wow.

A woman has been found guilty of murdering a lonely widower with a statue of the Virgin Mary and a tin of mangoes in Melbourne more than 13 years ago.

Katia Pyliotis murdered 69-year-old Elia Abdelmessih in 2005 when she worked at Kew McDonald's, where he would dine sometimes several times a day after his wife died a year earlier.

Interesting case. Why would a person dine several times a day at a McDonalds. Stalky behaviour?

Did he have a family member arrested some time ago? This will be interesting.

Are police allowed to keep RBT pieces that can be run through criminal databases? Is it that cheap yet?
