Lipstick and DNA

Aug 31, 2011 | Forensic DNA Testing

A blog article recently posted by Promega highlights how forensic DNA testing was used in a UK case involving two British women—a wife and her husband’s mistress.
The story itself is worthy of a soap opera, with a twist at the end of the story. The wife filed police reports blaming the mistress for various vicious attacks, including being stabbed by a screwdriver, having bleach thrown in her face, and several death threats. The mistress asserted her innocence, and her relatives started logging her whereabouts to aid her efforts to prove her innocence.
Ultimately, DNA testing was used on evidence collected, including a lipstick that was used to write a threatening message on the wife’s apartment window as well as an envelope used to send another threat.
DDC’s forensics scientists routinely isolate and perform DNA testing on samples such as described above. Our ASCLD/LAB-International accredited Forensics laboratory provides independent scientific analysis—we work with law professionals seeking DNA expertise in their cases, and we also provide DNA testing services to criminal investigators and police departments.
