CAT DNA solves homicide

This is an interesting story about how authorities solved a murder mystery using DNA found on some cat hair on the victim. I know I spend half my life covered in cat hair from my two Orange Tabbies. So, I guess I have to watch my step. 😉

Sadly, it now appears that it is easier to find a random animal using DNA, than to match to a Babb in England. Whatever happens, Keep Calm and Carry On!
