The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has an effort underway to help identify dozens of human remains using the latest DNA technology. According to their Website, "Many of these people were discovered decades ago when DNA testing was not available. As part of its effort, the BCA needs DNA samples from families of missing people to compare to the DNA obtained from the remains."
The BCA released a press release today explaining more about the effort and what families of missing should do.
A CBS news story also aired about the effort.
