New DNA confirms Rodriguez is Strangler

    A DNA sample taken this week confirms Antonio Rodriguez is the Kensington Strangler, the Inquirer reports. The 22-year-old was charged Wednesday with three counts of rape and murder after confessing to the deaths of Elaine Goldberg, Nicole Piacentini and Casey Mahoney. DNA taken in the summer when Rodriguez was released from jail connected him to the crimes. The new sample confirms the link.
