Police Unable to Tell a Rapist Apart from His Twin Brother

Quote:
Police who are investigating a series of sexual assaults in the southern French city of Marseille have arrested identical twin brothers.

There have been six similar sexual attacks in Marseille on women aged between 22 and 76 between September 2012 and January 2013.

Police got a lead from CCTV footage on a bus, and as a result they arrested the twin brothers. A victim also identified one of them as her attacker, but could not tell them apart.

Traces of the DNA of the perpetrator - or perpetrators - have been found on the victims.

But this does not really help, our correspondent adds, because the DNA of identical twins is itself more-or-less identical.

Police have been told it would cost upwards of 1m euros (£850,000) to conduct an ultra-sophisticated genetic test that would be able to tell one set of the twins' DNA from the other.
Well, this sucks big time...

could be right on that one. Why doesnt someone start a facebook page or something to raise the £850,000 they need for the test. FFS they raise money for such stupid shit these days at least this would do some good.

Just do what the American court system does. Use government money that will either way be wasted, conduct the test and have the culprit reimburse the justice system, then once you get the culprit's money ask the gov't for more. It of course will be sent to them.

I remember a case in the U.S. had a similar problem with twin brothers. One was in prison or on trial for homicide and both brothers blamed the other. I'll try to find an article about it and post it.

I was referring to the police paying the money for the test

But a FB campaign would help and I'll 'Like' it!!
