Michael from Othram tells Travis about their mission to solve previously unsolvable cases and provide names to unidentified remains cases. To do this, their lab is able to generate DNA profiles from original samples or extractions that may not be suitable for other forensic labs, including those that are very low quantity or are highly contaminated or degraded. The profiles are then used for genealogy, target testing, and more.
They also discuss the rewarding feeling that comes from assisting law enforcement agencies to close those cases and providing family members with closure, including the Carla Walker case from 1974. Those who are watching can help by visiting DNASolves.com.
