The child was not charged, but his DNA was taken, and now his family and members of the Unity in Community Meditation Team want to know why. “I’m asking the mayor to open up an investigation into this and actually look into how many times has this happened to our juveniles,” A.J.

    Lawyers for the man accused of shooting 10 people on a Brooklyn subway have accused the FBI of violating his rights in their interviews with him. Frank James, 62, is charged with conducting a violent attack on a mass transportation vehicle following the April 12 attack. He faces life in prison if convicted. Arrested on April 13, James is currently being held without bail in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, and James's lawyers claim that on Tuesday FBI agents entered his cell and questioned him, without following proper procedures. Mia Eisner-Grynberg and Deirdre von Dornum of the Federal Defenders of New York filed a complaint on Thursday, claiming that the FBI entered James's cell for questioning without alerting them before or after. They also took swabs of the inside of his mouth for DNA, made him sign documents, and failed to provide James with a receipt for the interaction.  Frank James is seen on April 13, immediately following his arrest. He has been in the Metropolitan Detention Center since then Mia Eisner-Grynberg (left) and Deirdre von Dornum (right) of the...
    Police in the Bay Area in California believe they've uncovered new evidence to solve the 24-year-old cold case of a missing mother of three who disappeared without a trace after a job interview. Janie June Coe, then 38, had a job interview on April 29, 1997. After the interview ended around 3 p.m. that day, she headed for her home on Penrod Drive in Petaluma. The job interview was the last place Coe was ever seen. She was reported missing a few days later on May 2, after she didn't pick up her children from their grandfather's house.  Police in the San Francisco area now believe DNA evidence has given them a break in the case.   Coe's 1989 Ford Aerostar was abandoned and found in a field on May 5. Police said she had friends in the area, but none had heard from her. Janie June Coe, then 38, was last seen leaving a job interview on April 29, 1997. She was reported missing on May 2 and hasn't been seen since. The Petaluma Police press release include an image...
    A Massachusetts cold case unit cracked the unsolved murder of a teen girl using old-fashioned investigative work – not advances in DNA technology – and arrested a suspect in Georgia after more than three decades, authorities said Wednesday. Rodney Daniels, 48, was arrested without incident in Georgia on Monday in connection to the 1991 fatal shooting of Patricia Moreno at an apartment in Malden, Massachusetts, where she lived with her foster family, law enforcement officials announced. BODY OF MISSING MICHIGAN WOMAN, 18, BELIEVED FOUND BURIED IN ‘FRESH DIRT’ OUTSIDE HOME: POLICE "This is a case that was solved not by a new development in forensic science, but as a result of relentless investigative work and a change in circumstances for some parties involved," said Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan. Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Malden Chief of Police Kevin Molis announced that Rodney Daniels has been charged with the murder of 17-year-old Patricia Moreno that occurred on July 20, 1991, in Malden, Massachusetts.

    It seems strange to Jim Giaccone that he is 60 this year. He was 40 when his 43-year-old brother Joe, who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 103rd floor of the World Trade Center’s North Tower, died on 9/11. “I’m 17 years older than he was when he was killed. The math just freaked me out,” Jim told The Daily Beast. “When I was 40 and he was 43, he was my older brother. Now he’s stuck at 43. I’m 60. It freaks me out he was so young.” The Giaccone family has to date received no remains of Joe. Not to have remains was first “a little surreal,” says Jim. “Through my whole life, when there was a death there was a natural progression of grief. With 9/11, this massive step, having a loved one’s body, was missing. I didn’t realize how powerful that step was until it was taken away. We had memorials which were very important but not having that step was unnerving, and it was for many years.” “Then stark reality sets in. I became...
    In a world first, scientists are using the controversial CRISPR technology to edit genes while the DNA is still inside a person's body. Typically, the tool -  used to treat conditions like sickle cell disease - removes cells from the body, edits out the mutated parts and then reinserts them, along with instructions to create the proper genes.  But a team at Editas Medicine, a biotechnology company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, says it believes it can use CRISPR like a mini surgeon to slice out non-functioning genes in the body rather than in a lab. NPR exclusively spoke with two of the four patients undergoing the landmark study, both of whom have been blinded by a rare genetic disorder, with the hopes that the technology will help them regain their sight.   Carlene Knight (pictured), 54, from Portland, Oregon, is one of two patients with a rare genetic eye disorder called Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) undergoing a new CRISPR study that will see genes edited while the DNA is inside the body  Michael Kalberer, 43 (pictured), from Long Island, New York,...
    A Michigan doctor reportedly used his own sperm to father hundreds of babies with patients over his 40-year career and sometimes without their knowledge.  According to a report from The Sun, a group of siblings have revealed that they are genetically matched after doing an online DNA test. The DNA test traced them to Dr Philip Peven, who was their parents' doctor. They now believe that he is their father.    One of the siblings, Jaime Hall, said Peven admitted to fathering her when she approached him about being her dad in December 2019.  Michigan doctor, Philip Peven, 104, reportedly used his own sperm to father hundreds of babies with patients and sometimes without their knowledge, his daughter, Jaime Hall (left) Hall, who runs the company Laser Pain Relief Center of America, told the Sun that he admitted to being her father and to using his own sperm to father hundreds of children, both as a sperm donor in the late 40s and in his medical practice as an obstetrician/gynecologist.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — It’s a little known fact: California stores newborn blood spot (NBS) samples from every child born in the state. Parents don’t have to consent, so many don’t even know. DNA from the samples may be used for potentially life-saving research, but in light of the Golden State Killer case and evolving DNA technology, there are new questions about what else the DNA is being used for and why the state does not ask for consent before indefinitely storing a child’s DNA. CBS13 has learned: Newborn blood spot DNA is being used by law enforcement in addition to researchers. The Newborn Screening informational pamphlets no longer disclose that the state will store the leftover blood spots indefinitely, nor does it provide opt-out information. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) says it “does not have (and has never had) an opt-in policy for storage of NBS specimens.” While parents must pay the state for their child’s genetic test, the law does not require the state to get consent before...
    THE HAGUE, Netherlands – A gynecologist who worked at an artificial insemination program at a Dutch hospital fathered at least 17 children using his own sperm without informing the parents, the hospital announced Tuesday. Gynecologist Jan Wildschut, who has since died, worked at the Sophia Hospital, now known as Isala Hospital, in the eastern city of Zwolle from 1981 through to 1993. Video“From a moral perspective, Isala finds it unacceptable that a gynecologist-fertility doctor was both practitioner and sperm donor," the hospital said in a statement. KATE BECKINSALE OPENS UP ABOUT PAST PREGNANCY LOSS, GIVES SUPPORT TO CHRISSY TEIGEN  The hospital said that the gynecologist's donor children, who have been confirmed using DNA tests, and his family are in regular contact and have a good relationship with each other.

    “The defendant does not deserve clemency,” said a California judge when reading the sentence against Joseph DeAngelo Joseph DeAngelo, the man known as the “Golden State Killer”, was sentenced this Friday to 11 life sentences in California, thus closing an investigation that began almost 50 years ago and that fascinated the world. DeAngelo, 74, was arrested in 2018 after his DNA was found on a genealogy website. This June, he admitted to being guilty of 13 murders following an agreement with prosecutors to avoid a possible death penalty. He also admitted to numerous rapes, robberies and other crimes. As a “Sociopath” It was defined this Friday by the Sacramento County District Attorney, Marie Schubert. After listening silently and without expression to the testimonies of the victims during the trial this week, DeAngelo addressed them a few words this Friday: he removed his mask and got up from the wheelchair he is in shortly before the judge Michael Bowman issued the sentence. “I have listened to all your statements. All and each one. And I really apologize to everyone I hurt,...
