UNT Human ID Center on the cusp of revolutionizing sexual assault investigations

DENTON — On August 25, 1963, Hillsboro police officers knocked on the door of the Glaze residence to inform Sylvan and Zeola that their 35-year-old son Kenneth was missing.
Officials at the time found Kenneth Glaze’s abandoned car days later, but identified the remains found in the vehicle as female. It appeared Glaze had disappeared from the face of the Earth.
In 2005, the Center for Human Identification at the UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth – with cooperation from the Fort Worth Police Department and Tarrant County Medical Examiner – conducted a DNA analysis on a remaining tooth found in Glaze’s car.
