I love it when cold case homicides get solved. Time Magazine had an interesting story on an inventive ruse used to get a DNA sample from the suspect in a 36 year old homicide case.
Gary Sanford Raub, who was an initial suspect in the killing of Maine woman Blanche M. Kimball, was fooled into providing a DNA sample to local law enforcement officers when he was asked to participate in a seemingly innocuous chewing gum survey, according to the Seattle Times.
Score one for the good guys.
