Taking a page from the playbook that caught the Golden State Killer, police have arrested a suspected rapist after his DNA was linked to the crime scenes through commercial genealogy websites. According to Reuters, 53-year-old Kevin Konther is suspected of committing multiple rapes in the 1990s, including the kidnapping and rape of a 9-year-old girl. Detectives used the sites to follow the family trees of matches, seeking blood relatives who roughly fit the profile of the suspected criminal. Both Konther and his twin brother were taken into custody on Thursday, before investigators identified Konther as the suspect and released his brother. His brother has not been publicly identified.
