How a Utah assault case upended the cutting-edge DNA website that caught the Golden State Killer – CNN

In looking for DNA articles a few days ago, I came across this article – How a Utah assault case upended the cutting-edge DNA website that caught the Golden State Killer: https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/27/us/genetic-genealogy-gedmatch-privacy/index.html.

My next post is a re-blog from The DNA Geek who takes a different view on why it’s a bad decision by GEDmatch, FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), and some other companies have chosen to do.

If anything, the “If you have nothing to hide, you should fully support what these companies are doing” arguments are naive in the extreme. Seen enough lawyers explain why there are certain things you should never do when law enforcement requests you do them.
