Help from Denver

    As the hunt for the elusive Kensington Strangler continues, Philadelphia Police will get help from Denver. The city’s District Attorney, Mitch Morrissey, has offered software that evaluates familial DNA.
    As CBS3 reports, the software can use DNA to help identify those related to the suspect, and hopefully, lead authorities to the Strangler. By searching a DNA database, the software could track down a relative of the Kensington Strangler, eventually leading to his arrest.
