A Florida resident succumbed to popular fashion - decided to compile his family tree, find out who his ancestors were and all that. He took a DNA test and waited anxiously for the news. And the news wasn't long in coming!
The guy had been arrested for a rape from 14 years earlier in Tampa Bay. Back then, some sober driver gave a tipsy college girl a ride to her dorm, fucked her in the bathroom, and took off. Police tried to hotwire the rapist with his genetic material, but there was no match.
But it has turned up now, because commercial DNA databases are open to law enforcement and are regularly used to uncover old grouse.
