The Genetic Detective Episode 5 Recap
Episode 5 revolves around the case of the Ramsey Street rapist, who was involved in multiple sexual assaults that had occurred between March 2006 and January 2008. A minimum of six women fell victim to this sexual predator while they were inside their homes. The cops managed to collect DNA samples from the crime scenes. The rape kits contained traces of semen or skin cells from the suspect and were submitted for profiling when the authorities figured out that the perpetrator was the same man. But the attacks stopped in 2008 and even 12 years later, no arrests had been made.
The Fayetteville police finally approached Parabon Labs and CeCe Moore helped them in first constructing an image of the rapist through phenotyping. The team then created a genotype of the DNA, obtained a genetic profile, and uploaded it on GEDMatch. CeCe was able to narrow down the suspect’s relatives to 10 matches. Ultimately, she was able to pinpoint the actual criminal — Darold Wayne Bowden, who had already served time for larceny 1993. In fact, he had a strong history of multiple crimes. Bowden was arrested and charged and then incarcerated in the Cumberland County Detention Center for a bond amount of $18.8 million. No requests for bond reduction were accepted.
