DNA, family tree help solve 52-year-old Seattle murder case

Seattle police said Tuesday they have solved a murder from nearly 52 years ago with the help of DNA and a family tree. Susan Galvin, 20, was raped and strangled in a parking garage elevator at Seattle Center in 1967. Last summer, police identified a potential suspect as Frank Wypych who died in 1987. Police exhumed his remains earlier this year to collect DNA and confirmed it matched the killers.

While I’m glad that the case was solved, I’m a little uneasy with the fact that a private company is giving access to DNA samples consumers are paying for, which I think should remain private. Like medical information. But the companies fine print normally say it won’t remain private so there is that. I just think it is a huge violation of privacy, no matter how good the cause.

Too bad he's not still alive, but at least he's burning in hell.
