Police Make Composite Sketch from Murder Suspect’s DNA – NBC 5 … – NBC 5 Dallas

Arlington homicide detectives used DNA evidence to make a composite sketch of the suspect in a 31-year-old unsolved murder — even though they don’t have a single witness to describe him.

In April 1986, someone shot and killed Teresa Branch and left her body outside an Arlington church. She was 18 years old.

“Everything that you can see right here is basically unchanged from 31 years ago,” said Claudio Branch, Teresa’s brother, pointing to a spot behind the Harmony Baptist Church on Arkansas Lane. “Her body was found in this parking lot right over here.”

In the three decades since the crime, police have made no arrests, but detectives haven’t given up.

They released a composite sketch of the suspect who is of Middle Eastern descent, according to the DNA profile.

It came from his DNA recovered at the crime scene.

“Thirty years ago when we collected this evidence,

Sketch Of 1992 Cold Case Murder Suspect Released By Police

COMUS, MD — Montgomery County Police released a composite sketch depicting a man who they believe was involved in a 25-year-old unsolved homicide of a Comus store owner.

On March 22, 1992, a customer at the Sugarloaf Mountain Market at 23800 Old Hundred Road in Comus found the owner of the market, 57-year-old James Essel, deceased inside the store. Essel had been stabbed multiple times and The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his death a homicide, police said.

A DNA profile of the suspect was obtained from the blood evidence that the suspect left at the scene. The DNA profile was entered into a national database in 1992 but as of yet, there has been no match.

Detectives recently sought the services of Parabon NanoLabs, a DNA technology company in Virginia that specializes in DNA phenotyping, the process of predicting physical appearance and ancestry from unidentified DNA evidence.
