Beer Bottle DNA Helped Police Press Charges Against Suspected Kansas City Killer

As always we hope locals will "trust the science" that's actually quite impressive in this local case that uses social media, witness testimony and lab tech to help catch a murder suspect.

Here's a peek at po-po methods . . .

Police located in the kitchen two beer bottles, one in the trash and one on a table. The living victim told police that the deceased victim was talking to someone about purchasing a vehicle.

As a result, a man came to the residence and got himself a bottle of beer from the fridge, drank it and threw it in the trash. At one point the victim got out his wallet and the defendant pulled a gun from his waistband and said, "Give me the money."

He fired shots, hitting both victims, then fled. A police analyst used social media from the victim's phone to show he was potentially purchasing a vehicle from the defendant. Police also established that DNA from the defendant was found on one of the beer bottles at the victim's residence. Prosecutors requested a $250,000 bond.
