During a press conference that was held on 2/14/2017, ten years after the murder of Jodine Serrin, investigators released a DNA based Snapshot ® composite created by Parabon NanoLabs depicting an image of what the suspect may have looked like. The composite is based on genetic predictions and witness input.
Investigators also announced a new website ( jodineserrin.net ) that is dedicated to the investigation. The website contains information about the case and makes it simple to share the Snapshot ® composite and information about the case on social media. The website also has areas where viewers can provide tips to the investigative team. The investigative team is hopeful that the vast reach of social media will increase the potential for help from the public.
The combination of technologies applied to this investigation has facilitated collaboration with the public and has already resulted in several tips. The development of new information in unsolved cases is encouraging. Investigators are reviewing tips and conducting related follow-ups where appropriate.
