New book on cold case investigations, DNA assistance
In Unsolved No More: A Cold Case Detective's Fight for Justice, Detective Kenneth Mains of Lycoming County, PA writes about six investigations. In one case, Detective Mains had DNA analyzed from the murder of a local 12-year-old girl. The Pennsylvania State Police sent the waistband DNA mixture data to Cybergenetics. TrueAllele computing found informative results.
A definite DNA match statistic requires a reference sample. But Main's primary suspect, Mr. Kim Lee Hubbard, refused to provide a DNA reference sample. "Despite Mains' book," reported Seth Nolan of the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, "Hubbard continues to assert his innocence." Investigator Mains' quest for justice continues.
