yes!  I hope my DNA helps someday.  I guess we will never know.  I wonder if they are using WikiTree to help build the pedigrees.

Months ago, DNA from the Zodiac killer case was submitted for the kind of genetic genealogy that has caught this and several other killers. I am anxiously hoping the DNA will be of good enough quality to catch the Zodiac, next to Jack the Ripper he is surely the most famous "boogeyman" still out there.

I love it when genetic genealogy solves cold cases. I find it very interesting. I wonder if the Genetic Detective will come back on tv? I love that show!
