Serial rapist identified through his DNA in South Africa

We are often asked whether we have any success stories using DNA in South Africa – well here is a great success story about using the power of DNA to identify serial offenders: a man has been linked to seven rape cases committed over a 5 year period, through his DNA. The rapes were committed between 2008 and 2012 in the greater Durban and KwaDukuza areas.
The 34-year-old man is due to appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court soon.  We will be sure to follow this case in the hope that the linking of his DNA to each case will secure a conviction.
