The case remains officially unsolved. Investigators were able to extract mitochondrial DNA from the boy's tooth. They are now attempting to link him to entries in a national mitochondrial DNA database.[8]

That does kindof beg the followup question - How much of our population is in that database? I mean, is this one of those "well, I guess we could try that.." measures, or does it actually have a decent chance of success?

It's fascinating that this is literally the sole case that the mods still wipe and delete any reference to specific events. And it happens across the internet, without fail, even on the most slanderous of forums.

The power of the McCanns to silence the media is truly astounding. They're literally more powerful than the Koch brothers (slander and mention of specific events relating to them has never been deleted from here).

She is "lucky" in that she has an unusual eye. It's the most easily identifiable characteristic about her. Unfortunately, if she's dead, she no longer has an eyeball, unusual or not.

I personally think she's rockin' the sex slave trade.

Poor thing would have been better if they'd killed her immediately.

Good question. It looks like we have the DNA of 10.6 million criminals in our National DNA Index (NDIS), but I can't find much about the databasing of infants' DNA.

namegoeshere: I personally think she's rockin' the sex slave trade.

I wouldn't say that, necessarily. If she were taken as a teenager, that could be, but young children are really good at adapting to whatever society they grow up in. If she were rescued now, we would likely consider her seriously mentally damaged, because she would have trouble fitting into a different culture (ours) and no one would accept her previous culture as being valid. I would suspect that right now, however, she's completely used to the society she's currently in.

True, but if she was in an Arab or Spanish society, she would stick out like a sort thumb.

That said, I don't buy the kidnapping story, especially if the parents were going back every 20 minutes. It's the sort of thing that makes good movies, but I'm more inclined to believe that the parents were involved or else that she just got up, walked out the unlocked patio doors and into the night.

There have been an amazing number of "kidnappings" in the past few years that were really parental murders. I mean, probably before that too, but I only started really following kidnapping stories a few years ago. Seems like any kidnapping has at LEAST a 50% chance of being a parental murder anymore.

It is actually more like 85% of the time. Unfortunately it causes valuable time to be lost when there is an actual kidnapping by some sick pedo. The police have to start and rule out the family and relatives first.

No. Stop spreading FUD. 98% of child abductions/molestations are by parents, or someone the child knows. Abductions by strangers are rare, usually fueled by opportunity, and the only reason we here so much is because of the Media. There is NOT a pervert on every corner and kids are actually safer now on the streets than they were 30 years ago.

Yeah, and it sucks to HOLY HELL for the parents of the few kids who really were stranger snatched. There they are, facing a parent's worst nightmare, barely holding it together, and they farking know almost everyone, everywhere thinks they did it. And the police are going to go full out to get them to admit it. They really do need to lawyer up immediately, but they know lawyering up is almost universally seen as an admission of guilt.

And then here comes Nancy Grace all up in their business...

I think that is pretty unlikely. The sex slave industry isn't as common as the media portrays it, even in non-first world countries. A white girl would stick out like a sore thumb in those countries as well, which would make it even less likely.

Most likely she took off herself or the parents (or someone they know) did it.

If she took off herself, wouldn't a three-year-old white girl stick out even more on the streets (where no one thinks she should be) than in some pedophiles' care (where the pedophiles think she should be)?

No one is laughing about the kid being missing (I hope). But the extrapolation provided is very worthy of ridicule. It is supposed to be what an eight-year old looks like and yet is clearly a picture of an adult.

Max Awesome: um... is that boy in the box photo upthread a picture of a dead child? I thought posting pictures of dead people was frowned upon around here.


It's an artist's sketch off a wanted poster.

It's really a sad story because it's likely someone is being protected. There are plenty of unsolved murders that are only unsolved because the killer is someone's nephew or son.

One of the worst serial killers in US history was probably like this. The chief crime fighter in the country Elliot Ness signed on as Cleveland's chief cop. The Kingsbury Run Torso Killer was leaving bodies all over Cleveland, Pennsylvania and even Canada. Ness pretty much identified the killer as a member of a US Congressman's family. Ness was unable to press charges, the killer agreed to commit himself to a mental institution and the killing stopped. Only problem was the guy checked himself out of the facility and continued killing most likely into the 1950s. He might have even been the killer of the Black Dahlia in Los Angeles.
