Episode 5: DNA’s Role in the Golden State Killer Case

220px-Original_Night_Stalker-East_Area_RapistFor years, authorities in California have pursued an individual believed to be responsible for at least 12 murders, more than 50 rapes and over 100 burglaries.

This week, a suspect was arrested after matching crime scene DNA with genetic material that was stored by a distant relative on GEDmatch.

The case has garnered compliments for crafty police work, but also generated some privacy concerns.

Joining Shannon Halligan and Nick Sloan in this special episode to discuss the Golden State Killer case is Michael Tabman, a retired agent from the FBI and security consultant.
