Forensic Genetic Genealogy (FGG), also known as Investigative Genealogy, is an emerging law enforcement investigative technique to identify an offender or victim of a violent crime through the use of crime-scene DNA. FGG became widely known following the identification of the serial killer known previously as the Golden State Killer. Since the solution of that investigation, the Los Angeles FBI FGG program has used FGG to solve almost 40 cases. SA Whitman will talk about FGG’s genesis, how the process works, and recent examples of cases solved through its use.
