#Cold Cases

New York Times

The NYT takes a look at Manhattan Dist. Atty. Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who  is expanding the use of DNA to solve old cases.

The NYT says: On Wednesday, Mr. Vance will travel to Albany in support of a proposal to expand DNA collection to include those convicted of all felonies and misdemeanors, rather than the 46 percent of all crimes now covered by state law. (Some states take DNA evidence from anyone arrested in a felony, a policy the Bloomberg administration supports.)
