    I've often wondered about NamUs automatically cross-checking DNA of MPs and UIDs. If I understand correctly both DNA profiles were in NamUs but they weren't compared until you submitted the cases as a possible match. Correct? If so, then I suppose we shouldn't assume two profiles have been automatically excluded yet not listed as exclusions. Am I on the right track here?

    Welcome to Websleuths, Brigette! Hopefully you've gotten some comfort and relief by finally being able to solve the "where is he?" part of having lost him. The not knowing must be the hardest part to deal with for the loved ones. I can't imagine the anguish you and others must have felt. My condolences to you.

    Brigette, so sorry for your loss. Nonetheless, I'm relieved that his case has been closed with answers. Best wishes.

    Years back I wrote a couple posts about this, which I have linked below. Warning: they are out of date and grossly oversimplified.

    post #1: IL - IL - Mascoutah, BlkFem Skeletal 327UFIL, 20-40, SK victim, off I-64, Jan'02

    post #2: IL - IL - Mascoutah, BlkFem Skeletal 327UFIL, 20-40, SK victim, off I-64, Jan'02

    I believe the core takeaways are still true:
    • NamUs is not the same as CODIS ("Combined DNA Index System"). DNA profiles are stored and searched in CODIS. An investigator may choose to tell NamUs that the MP's or UID's DNA profile is already available in CODIS or elsewhere. Investigators making new entries in NamUs are supposed to submit DNA profiles to CODIS if available.
    • DNA profiles "flow upward" according to each jurisdiction's own practices. A DNA profile available in a local city database might not be in the state database. A DNA profile in a state database might not be in the national database.
    • Even if DNA profiles for both MP and UID are in the same databases, there may not be a "hit." Matches and associations depend on the types of DNA used, the sources, and the completeness of the profiles.
    In other words, don't assume anything.
