    In December of 1991 a high school student was killed right on the grounds of her high school campus. Twenty years later, detectives and genealogists attempted the first genealogy investigation. But the science wasn’t there. Twenty-eight years later, an arrest would be made. This is the case of Sarah Yarborough.

A new aspect of true crime

Forensic genealogy has revolutionized the ability to resolve both cold cases and hot cases-anywhere there is DNA available. She does a thorough job of describing the situation and the resolution including commentary. I have heard cases here that I haven’t heard before which is refreshing. I hope to hear lots more! Its hard to find true crime podcasts that specifically include the forensic genealogy aspect so this definitely fills a niche that is needed.

Awesome storytelling

Love the way she tells the story with great detail. It has encouraged me to upload my dna to gedmatch as well. So important to tell these storied to show the importance of having dna to bring justice to these victims and families.
