REMINDER: New CBS 48-Hours documentary to be broadcast on Saturday, April 15, at 10.00 PM. “Police have DNA evidence in a brutal murder, but can’t match a killer — so how did a public DNA database lead police to suspect a filmmaker of murder?"
STORY: "A look at efforts to catch the Dodge killer," by reporter Bryan Clark, published by The Post Register on April 14, 2017.
GIST: "It’s been nearly 21 years since 18-year-old Angie Dodge was killed in her apartment in the letter streets neighborhood of Idaho Falls. And though police, defense investigators, outside investigators and Carol Dodge, Angie’s mother, have pursued a variety of leads over the decades and across the country, so far no match has been found to the numerous DNA samples found at the crime scene. All the samples match one unknown man. The case, in short, is very cold. In recent years, much of the focus has turned to new techniques and new technology to generate new suspects and new investigative leads. “Every time we find something new, we’re going to work on it,” Idaho Falls Police Chief Mark McBride promised. There are a variety of techniques that have some potential to find the man who killed Angie Dodge. Some are already being pursued. Others are currently unavailable. Here’s a look at a few." (Familial searching; The Usry Test; DNA Phenotyping);"

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: I am monitoring this case/issue. Keep your eye on the Charles Smith Blog for reports on developments. The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at: http://www.thestar.com/topic/
