State catching up on DNA samples


Wisconsin State Journal
Wisconsin authorities have collected almost half of the nearly 18,000 samples that were found to be missing from the state’s DNA databank in fall 2009.
As of this week, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections had collected 8,366 of the 17,698 missing DNA profiles, agency data shows. Of the 9,332 offenders who still owed a sample, about 95% of them have completed their sentences and are no longer under state supervision.
