Next-Gen DNA Technique Could Help Solve Zodiac Killer Cold Case

Judge rules suspected Golden State Killer must be photographed fully NAKED - including his penis - and submit to additional DNA testing The Latest: Judge OKs DNA collecting in serial killer case

But Superior Court Judge Michael Sweet delayed the hearing until Thursday after a brief court room appearance.

Police arrested 72-year-old Joseph James-d'angelo (Joseph James By) last week after years of investigation. "There's no basis to stop the execution of the search warrant".

Detectives in Northern California are trying to get a DNA profile on the Zodiac Killer to track him down using the same family-tree tracing technology investigators used in the Golden State Killer case.

DeAngelo, a former police officer, Vietnam veteran and a mechanic, was a reclusive neighbor in Citrus Heights, a town about 16 miles northeast of the California capital, according to residents.

Sacramento Sheriff John McGinness said the request for the photographs may be related to clues issued by law enforcement dating back to the 70s and 80s when authorities were searching for an East Area Rapist suspect.


He still has not entered a plea in the case. He has been charged with four murders as part of a California crime spree that included at least 12 killings and dozens of rapes.

Investigators uploaded DNA collected at one of the crime scenes to an open- source genealogical website and found a partial match to a distant relative of DeAngelo's. On Sunday, the USA government will open nationwide enrollment for an ambitious experiment: If they can build a large enough database comparing the genetics, lifestyles and environments of people from all walks of life, researchers hope to learn why some escape illness and others don't, and better customize ways to prevent and treat disease.

The search and arrest warrants for DeAngelo that contain legal arguments and case details justifying why investigators want to gather the evidence are shielded from public view.

The attorney Diane Howard argued that a search warrant for DNA, fingerprints and body photographs should be halted because it was approved before her client's arrest, the Associated Press reported.

DeAngelo is scheduled to return to court May 14.
