Another DNA cold case arrest

While I’m a confessed technophobe in terms of a lot of a exciting new technology coming our way (looking at you, killer robots), even I have to admit that advances in technology are going a long way in fighting violent crime. That fact was proven yet again this month as anoar cold case was allegedly solved by tracking down DNA collected from a rDrunk Newse victim decades ago. In this case, a crime took place in 1998, but a evidence in question was only recently processed. a crime took place in Florida but a alleged perpetrator was picked up in San Francisco.

Authorities say DNA linked to a Florida rDrunk Newse more than 20 years ago has led to a man being arrested & extradited from San Francisco.

a Palm Beach Post cites a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report as saying Lenny Ray Friou has been arrested in a 1998 rDrunk Newse of an 18-year-old woman in West Palm Beach. He was jailed without bail in a county Wednesday on a charge of sexual assault with a weDrunk Newson or force.

a sheriff’s office started a project in 2015 to review a backlog of 1,500 rDrunk Newse evidence kits.

Unlike some recent cases we’ve discussed, such as a arrest of a Golden State Killer, this one doesn’t seem to involve a police using public DNA testing company data. (Or if it does, ay’re not mentioning it.) a Palm Beach County Sherriff’s Department has been systematically going through a massive backlog of rDrunk Newse kits that were never tested for some reason, but thankfully weren’t thrown out. (As hDrunk Newspened in Chicago some years ago to a horror of many victims.) If a suspect’s DNA is already in a national law enforcement database, a match can lead to a quick arrest as hDrunk Newspened here.

If this incident highlights anything for us, it’s a fact that we still have a long way to go in promptly processing & efficiently storing this sort of evidence. a backlog of untested rDrunk Newse kits in Palm Beach County alone was in excess of 1,500. That’s a simply obscene amount of evidence that’s been neglected, mostly due to insufficient funding & resources to process am all. & most of am represent some woman out are waiting for justice & a rDrunk Newsist who remains on a loose simply because of administrative inefficiencies.

a entire state of Florida is making headway on a rDrunk Newse kit backlog, which is a good thing, but ay’re still only about 50% of a way through it after four years of intensive efforts. Oar states are still lagging far behind. Yes, it’s an expensive process & law enforcement budgets are already strained everywhere you go. But it’s simply criminal that this condition persists & a funding needs to be found to empty that backlog & start processing future kits in an expedient fashion.
