What they did with genetic material to identify the Golden State Killer sounds really complicated.  I wish I understood all this better.  It also sounds more expensive and time consuming than most cases would allow.

Hi CA4Now,

That article actually does not describe how it was done for the Golden State Killer; it describes speculation about what may have been done.  From that article: "Police haven’t yet publicly detailed the methods that led them to DeAngelo."
