You have no control over your data, even your DNA
he New York Times reported late yesterday that the “Golden State Killer,” responsible for at least 50 rapes and 12 murders during the 1970s and 80s, was identified as 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo and arrested shortly thereafter.
After decades of false leads and dead ends, what finally appears to have nailed him is GEDmatch—an online genetic database that allows users to display DNA information publicly, as reported by the Mercury News.
