As for DNA

The results that have been collected more than a decade ago indicate a 3 out of 5 hit for Hart. They could also indicate a close relative. At the time of the murders the OBSI believed that Hart had >250 blood relatives in the area. This is problematic on many fronts. The results from the latest testing for a DNA match hasn't been released, for some reason. Many speculate there has been a hit, and law enforcement has submitted the results through criminal and civilian DNA databases to look for a famialr match to Hart. They may have found one or more and trying to quantify the suspect(s) whereabouts before releasing their findings, for further prosecution.

Girl Scout Murders

The DNA that was collected from the girls need to be sent to Parabon Nanolabs. The police may be lucky enough to trace the DNA through ancestry collections.
