DNA lab makes coast-to-coast news
Our Center for Human Identification will provide DNA analysis of family reference samples in support of Patricia's Law, a law recently passed in New Jersey, according to the New Jersey Star Ledger. New Jersey is the first state in the U.S. to pass comprehensive legislation regulating the collection of DNA evidence in missing persons cases, and the new law requires all law enforcement to collect family reference samples when a person has been missing for 30 days.

The DNA lab's contribution in identifying the remains of a 14-year-old in Yakima, Wash., was included in an article in the Tacoma News Tribune last week. The lab was also credited with the identification of a 62-year-old discovered in Lake Buchanan in Texas' hill country in the blog Austinist.
