German police testing DNA of 900 men for unsolved 1996 murder

Police in Germany have asked nearly 900 men on Saturday to come forward and have their DNA tested to help solve the 1996 gruesome murder of an 11-year-old girl. Claudia Ruf was kidnapped in May 1996 while walking her neighbor’s dog. Her body was found two days later - having been strangled, covered in gas and partially burned.

The actual killer would obviously not show up for the so-called police invitation. Anyone that values their privacy would also not do it. So how is this supposed to work?

They do not need the actual *rapist's* DNA - just a family member's. :D
