The arrest of a man for crimes in the 1980's using GEDmatch was unethical but perhaps the end justifies the means. Did they get the right man? Why would a serial killer and rapist stop in the 1980's? Is this the first time in history that a serial killer and rapist found a conscience, had a change of heart and lived like a normal human being?

It was in the papers that ysearch was used to catch the suspect also. I don't know how one would find a suspect using YSTR info. Even a close match at 67 or 111 markers is not enough evidence of a close relationship. YSNP tests would be the most accurate way to go. ... r-and-dna/
