    I hope this will hold up in court. Glad they caught him but that’s scary Big Brother stuff.

    That's where it comes in handy to check and double check with DNA from discarded items. 😉

    I agree, it is a little big brother. People are voluntarily doing this though. I don't know that they violated the killer's rights. This is degree of separation from him. They used whatever site they used to get an idea of his family tree. This didn't pinpoint him exactly but gave them a place to start. The DNA match they used to tie him to the crime was taken legally by the discarded DNA sample.

    Did they have a court order to search the databases? I don't know. Did they create a fake name and profile to search? I don't know. If they did is that illegal? I don't think the laws have caught up on this yet. Even if they violated the private company policy, that isn't illegal.

    I do think that after this case there probably will end up being a lot of discussion on access to these commercial sites by LE when searching for people like this.

    Most of these sites seem to have disclaimers saying if they have a court order then they'll have to comply. There are also third party search sites. I am so curious to know what tool they used. Ancestry and 23andme said they didn't get any request from LE.

    I am so curious what brought him to SoCal. And it seems his home was still in Sacramento but he spent a good amount of time in SoCal. Why? Did he get a temporary job down there? Maybe stayed with relatives for a bit following losing his job? I hope to learn more about that part as the investigators share more of what they learn.

    Would they even know though?

    Maybe LE just submitted the sample as a "John Doe" and then received a lot of good information about who they may have been related to.

    So the websites may be accurate in saying they were not talked to by LE but maybe LE used them anyway and they didnt even know about it.

    This makes me wonder if GEDmatch provided LE access to their database. GEDmatch is a free site with some pay features and it has a lot of users. Many of the features are free, so many who have uploaded their DNA into GEDmatch are not paid subscribers.

    A few years ago, I uploaded my DNA into GEDmatch and was assigned a kit number. I recently tried to delete my DNA from GEDmatch, but only my kit number was deleted and I discovered that GEDmatch will forever have my raw dna.

    There are many people who have posted their family trees to GEDmatch as well and it appears LE used family trees as they looked into DeAngelo. My experience is that there are people from all over the world who use GEDmatch, and with Ancestry, my experience has been that it is mostly people from the USA.

    I'm a paid subscriber of Ancestry.com and from an income stream standpoint, they have paid subscribers and they sell dna kits. My understanding is that Ancestry.com is also owned by the LDS church. GEDmatch is kind of a mystery. It is said that two men own it and use their own money to operate it and they also use volunteers to help run the site. It's interesting, but they have a huge DNA database and it comes from people who have had their DNA tested by other companies, and who want to get more detail than the other companies provide..

    This is going to open up a huge can of worms for those types of sites.

    Because I can guarantee they are afraid of losing business because the first thing I thought about when I heard the news was I was never ever going to use a site like that even if I have a desire to know my family history.

    I wonder if they're lying about not working with LE.......Facebook has been supposedly lying for years, as have other big information companies about what they do with your info.

    Maybe he got into a huge fight with his wife over him getting fired from his cop job after getting caught with a can of dog repellent & a hammer down his pants.

    Being this guys wife had to be chaotic.....she probably said to him, WTF were you doing with a hammer & dog repellent in your pants while trying to run out the back of the store & you're a cop you dumb ass!

    I could see her losing her mind just over that........maybe he went down south for a vacation to get away & get his head on straight........except he had other things on his mind.

    Getting fired had him losing his job of feeling "powerful", & using the cop job as a cover for his hobby of rape & pillaging. Now that he lost his cover, it really pisses him off & although I felt he was evolving into murder possibly, the firing flipped the switch into murder, killing people to get back at everyone in his life that caused him pain.

    What an absolute Monster.
    These poor victims.

    This one Monster destroyed hundreds or more, people's lives.

    I hope he suffers every single hour of the rest of his life.

    I hope he never eats a good meal ever again.

    I hope the rest of his **** life is filled with fear and hatred. Just like what he inflicted on innocent people who never did a damn thing to him.

    I'll stop with that.

    (O/T, I recall posting in another case about a confirmed link between a DNA ancestry type company and a criminal case...so I know it DOES happen, moo...will see if I can find it, fwiw...it was a female doctor/analyst who worked for the company who also assisted LE, iirc...)

    Amazing news btw. Just getting caught up. Between this and Bill Cosby's guilty verdict...fantastic!

    (Eta: Talk about one of the most vicious and brazen killers ever!)

    (Eta: upon a quick Google search I found this as an example, not the case I'm thinking of specifically though:

    Man became suspect in murder and rape case after DNA his father donated to Mormon genetic research was sold to Ancestry.com and then tested by police

    Look up GEDMatch and GEDGenesis. They probably used those.

    NO! He is widely-known to have an embarassing micro-penis, he should continue to live with that shame!
