You know.. In the UK.. they collect DNA if you are ever brought into a police station for any reason, they take your DNA..In cases like Neveah's it is not unheard of communities volunteering to give DNA.. Do they need the killer's.. no.. they don't.. and yes it has raised issues of right to privacy how they take a store DNA even if you are not found guilty of a crime.. like when they bring you in on a charge, take your DNA and charges are then dropped..But the benefit has been for Law Enforcement comes in when they catch a rape or a murder case because they get the DNA of a relative....Now I am not saying that we should do what the UK does.. However, if there is DNA evidence.. and a voluntary donation drive would not be that costly.. Would people who may have a relative who did this.. Could we possibly catch the person..You know.. Monroe is made up of only so many people.. If LE has some sort of clue as in a DNA sample.. It would at least show if the perp is white or other ethnic group.. The profile may have other clues depending how much the have.. how degraded it may be or if they don't have any DNA at all..But if they do.. they can narrow down a profile.. then ask the public to donate DNA.. if it is a male they are looking for.. both women and men can offer their DNA... Because men have both types..What you hope to get is a relative.. even a distant cousin.. to narrow the search.. They have solved so many cases like this in the UK by getting a relatives DNA..I don't know how much it would cost.. I have my DNA stored with special study they are doing about people who are from the Cumberland Gap area... Its part of National Geographic, Family Tree and Cambridge University.. they store it in this huge data base.. and as more people submit test.. you can see your geneology unfold.. I did pay for the cost of the test.. which was about a hundred bucks.. and they have tracked.. relatives going back to England and Ireland.. all over the States and Canada...I did this ten years or more ago.. I allow people to contact me.. I get emails from all over the place from people who are distant relation.. So it can go back and find shirt tail cousins.. Its very cool..So.. I think the testing could be done at LE for cost.. it would be less than a hundred bucks a person.. Some people would pay.. and I am sure a fund could be build to do the project..all it takes is a swab of your cheek.. Because who did this IS from Monroe... they have relatives.. people would come forward just to find out.. LE could narrow down.. it could be done anonymously.. and the promise that the DNA of people donating would be destroyed... If there IS DNA.. I think its time we search and ask for DNA.. packs could be sent anywhere to anyone.. they can self swab and send it back.. they could do it anonymously even.. assigning a number with the packet.. post the numbers of people they may find who are a relative and then ask them to come forward to LE...It can be done!!!!! and I think that is the only way this case will be solved....
Or the killer could be trained in law enforcement and knew either how to avoid leaving evidence or how to render it useless.Of course leaving something behind that has an innocent persons DNA wouldn't be difficult either.
Do you really think the FBI and the onslaught of other LE agencies had not done that? Come on.Said it before, and will sadly say it again.....someone got away with a perfect crime that will most likely go unsolved.
NO ONE is perfect ..not even LE or the FBI..yes something could have been overlooked....just saying. Sometimes, some of the evidence goes unlooked at in another perspective....until someone reevalutates it..it happens with the FBI all the time. Like I said before, someone knows who did it or some clue they are hiding...the parking lot was really not full of kids..there were a few but not alot..the lot was virtually empty from adults also....this I know..because I live there. I was at work at the time..but know from my neighbors of how many was in that back lot.The Chicken..YES you are right in all perspectives of the DNA..I just cannot fathom LE or the FBI not at least trying to find some kind of DNA..even from the clothes she had on..there has to be some kind of clue that was overlooked...NO ONE is perfect...at a so called as everyone has put it perfect crime. If they found carpet fibers under her nails...DNA should have been found somewhere somehow.
