The mother of a newborn baby found deceased in a cooler in Troup County, Ga. has been identified more than one year later.
“From the moment this case was opened, I and my team of investigators were determined to bring this case to a conclusion. I cannot thank them enough for their determination to close a case that touched many people and were it not for the work of DNA Solutions and Innovative Forensic DNA, LLC, this case may not have been solved. We greatly appreciate their assistance,”said Sheriff James Woodruff.”
This year, the fundraiser will also have 100 DNA kits available from Innovative Forensic DNA for attendees that want to participate in the Upload for Justice campaign. It’s a movement in response to law enforcement being opted out of several public databases, which put the brakes on several cold case investigations.
“Upload for Justice” is a year-long initiative to collaborate with law enforcement to assist their own officers and detectives, families of victims, survivors and others to upload DNA to close cold cases.
