    The body of a 57-year-old woman has been identified using a DNA sample from her son nearly three decades after it was found buried in a shallow grave in the Southern California desert.  Patricia Cavallaro, of Bellflower, was found wrapped in plastic and tied with a brown cord in Thousand Palms on October 24, 1994, before officials identified the woman on Monday. Cavallaro's death had been the result of 'homicidal violence,' according to the coroner, but her body was so decomposed it was not possible to determine who she was or how she was killed.    Cavallaro was only reported missing by her husband in 2001 - seven years after her remains were found. The husband, who was not identified by officials, died in 2017. It remains unclear why he waited seven years from her disappearance to report her missing.  The victim remained unknown to police until the Riverside County DA's Regional Cold Case Homicide Team picked up the investigation last year. A DNA sample from Cavallaro's  son helped crack the mystery.  The DA's office said on Monday that an investigation...

    A skull of a new species of ancient human has been discovered in Africa that experts believe was a direct ancestor of modern humans. The new species has been named Homo bodoensis, and lived during the Middle Pleistocene, around 500,000 years ago. Researchers from the University of Winnipeg hope the discovery will bring some clarity to this era, during which human evolution is poorly understood. Dr Mirjana Roksandic, who led the study, said: 'Talking about human evolution during this time period became impossible due to the lack of proper terminology that acknowledges human geographic variation.' A new species of ancient human has been discovered in Africa that experts believe was a direct ancestor of modern humans (artist's impression pictured) In their new analysis, the researchers suggest that a skull found in Bodo D'ar, Ethiopia belongs to neither H. heidelbergensis or H. rhodesiensis, but instead, is a new species entirely What do we know about the new species? In honour of the location in which the skull was discovered, the researchers have named the species H. bodoensis.

    One of the victims of a notorious Alaska serial killer, who was known only as 'Horseshoe Harriet' since her body was discovered almost 40 years ago, has finally been identified through genetic genealogy and a DNA match. Robin Pelkey, 19, was homeless and living on the streets of Anchorage when she was killed by Robert Hansen in the early 1980s, the Alaska Bureau of Investigation's Cold Case Investigation Unit said. According to her killer, she was working as a 'prostitute' when he murdered her. A DNA match with a close relative in Arkansas confirmed Pelkey's identity and the family was notified in September. 'Obviously, I'm very happy to have finally figured out who she is and give her family some closure,' Randy McPherron, an Alaska State Troopers cold case investigator,  said. 'Genetic genealogy has been quite a great leap forward in solving unsolved homicides but in also identifying people, so this is very satisfying to see it finally come together like this.'  Serial killer Hansen, who owned a bakery, gained the nickname 'Butcher Baker' for abducting and hunting down women — many of...
