REGISTER ONLINE NOW

DNAIn April 2018, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced a break in the decades old Golden State Killer cold case. By uploading DNA data taken from old crime scene evidence to a consumer genealogy website, authorities were able to narrow the list of suspects to a group that included Joseph James DeAngelo, who subsequently was arrested for the crimes. Law enforcement found a new and powerful investigative tool and privacy advocates are concerned.

Join Barbara Rae-Venter, a forensic genealogist who worked with law enforcement on the Golden State Killer Case, Kelley Kulick, Deputy Public Defender for Santa Clara County, and a representative from law enforcement, for a lively discussion about this new criminal investigative tool.
