Joseph James DeAngelo killed 12 people between 1970 and 1980 and raped 45 women. The offender, who was arrested on April 24, 2018, was seized by a website listing genealogy according to DNA data.


Thanks to services like 23 and Me and Ancestry, genealogies based on DNA data of people in many countries, especially USA, are being revealed. These services, popular in recent years, have begun to reveal quite interesting cases when used by law enforcement agencies.

Between 1970 and 1980, a criminal who killed 12 people and raped 45 females handed over the services through these services.

The investigators, who had left the murderer in a crime scene and analyzed the blood samples held by the police in the family genealogical services, arrested him with his murderers. This service is kept under confidentiality because the site used for the investigation is covered by the investigation.

The District Attorney’s Office of Sacramento, the US city where the killer was captured, confirmed the entire story of this killer, nicknamed “Bee.” Prosecutors conducting the investigation refused to give more detail to the press, but did not give an opinion on the safety of the data. The words of 23andMe and Ancestry sites, which revealed genealogies by DNA data, are not part of these investigations.

After the Cambridge Analytica scandal that emerged with Facebook, the world is on the verge of a new data privacy crisis. There is no problem in using technology for the capture of criminals, but it can be said that malicious occurrences can be caused by very serious scenarios.
