Update on a case I covered previously:

After having phenotyping done with Parabon last year, the Carlsbad (CA) Police and San Diego County District Attorney's office have announced that they have identified a suspect in the murder of special-needs victim Jodine Serrin in 2007. They did not find the suspect in available databases, but they did find relatives leading them to identify deceased transient David Mabrito. It turns out Oceanside (CA) Police did have a sample of his DNA, but it had not been processed because he died shortly after it was taken. They used the sample to get a match.

This is the case where the parents walked in and found the suspect in bed with their daughter. They left the room to give them privacy, not realizing that their daughter had already been murdered. The suspect escaped while they waited.

This one includes the Parabon picture and parents' comment:
