A MOSQUITO AND DNA. I have posted previously about the intricacies of DNA evidence. This post tells about the search for the “Phantom Without a Face” and about the solution—months later—to the mystery.
Annalisa just sent me this link to a BBC article about a use of DNA in Finland to identify a car thief. A dead mosquito was found in a stolen car. The mosquito had recently sucked blood. The DNA from the blood in the mosquito matched the DNA of a man in the police registry.
