OH - Malissa Thomas, 13, & Rosie Davenport, 12, Akron, 1995 & 1996
She was murdered. They found her a week later.
DNA/CODIS provided a match to the killer.
It identified 45-year-old Donald Craig who is currently on death row for the 1996 homicide of Rosie Davenport, which was a case solved by DNA comparison.

Investigators say they'll also be looking into other cases to see if they too can be linked to Craig.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

The FBI Laboratory's Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) blends forensic science and computer technology into an effective tool for solving violent crimes. CODIS enables federal, state, and local crime labs to exchange and compare DNA profiles electronically, thereby linking crimes to each other and to convicted offenders.
CODIS began as a pilot project in 1990 serving 14 state and local laboratories. The DNA Identification Act of 1994 (Public Law 103 322) formalized the FBI's authority to establish a national DNA index for law enforcement purposes. In October 1998, the FBI's National DNA Index System (NDIS) became operational. CODIS is implemented as a distributed database with three hierarchical levels (or tiers) - local, state, and national. NDIS is the highest level in the CODIS hierarchy, and enables the laboratories participating in the CODIS Program to exchange and compare DNA profiles on a national level. All DNA profiles originate at the local level (LDIS), then flow to the state (SDIS) and national levels. SDIS allows laboratories within states to exchange DNA profiles. The tiered approach allows state and local agencies to operate their databases according to their specific legislative or legal requirements

From December 2012:
Ohio death row inmate Donald Lavell Craig died last week after being hospitalized for seven months, prison officials said...
Davenport recalled the torment his family endured that winter after Rosie was missing for eight days before her body was found in the basement of a vacant house on South Maple Street... DNA testing in 2002 linked Craig to the killing. He was sentenced to death in 2004.
Additional DNA testing in 2006 linked Craig to Malissa Thomas’ death from 1995. He received a second death sentence after that conviction in Summit County Common Pleas Court.
