Police Just Solved A 32-Year-Old Murder Case Using A Napkin And A DNA Website 😮

By Mark LoProto

Just in case you were considering committing a crime, know that police will be able to solve it using a simple genealogy test. That’s exactly how they uncovered the man behind the 32-year-old murder of Michella Welch.

Welch was discovered dead near a Washington State Park when she was just 12. There were signs of sexual assault but police were unable to link the murder to anyone. After submitting a napkin Hartman used while dining 32 years later, however, they were able to pinpoint Gary Hartman, now 66, as the killer.
