Man pleads guilty in NM’s first-of-its-kind rape investigation

We are extremely proud that the first ever use of forensic genealogy in New Mexico resulted in a conviction after so many years of uncertainty. This conviction demonstrates that forensic genealogy is an important new tool in law enforcement and sends a powerful message to victims that we will use every means at our disposal to fight for them.
