After 10-year rape kit delay, man charged with raping, kidnapping teen in Seattle




SEATTLE - Eleven years after the attack, a 52-year-old man is arrested for the kidnapping and repeated rape of a 14-year-old girl he allegedly abducted in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of South Seattle.

The victim's rape kit, stored among more than 1,000 in a well-known backlog of untested sets of evidence, was finally examined and yielded a DNA match for Darin Bolar in December 2017.

Police arrested Bolar Sept. 26 and prosecutors charged him Monday with first-degree kidnapping and two counts of second-degree rape for the October 2007 attack.

Suspect arraigned in 1997 Mobile rape; part of cold-case initiative
Updated October 3, 2018 at 1:00 PM



The 1997 rape on Broad Street was a classic cold case. If a Wednesday arraignment leads to a conviction, it may become a classic example of why it pays to revisit dead ends.

It was December, according to prosecutors. A young woman was walking home from work. She was accosted by a stranger, led behind a vacant building at gunpoint and sexually assaulted. Investigators collected DNA evidence and she provided a description of her assailant, but the investigation provided no leads.

It took 20 years for that to change. Mobile became one of a number of cities receiving federal Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) grants aimed specifically at clearing backlogs of stored evidence kits. The DNA sample in this case actually had been tested in the beginning, but hadn't provided a match. But when it was sent off again for testing in 2016, thanks to the new funding, there was a much bigger DNA database to compare it to. This time there was a match: Frederick Antoine Tate.

Tate, 42, whose first name is also listed as "Fredrick" in court records, was already in prison. He'd pleaded guilty to a rape charge in 1999. In 2008 he pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender, drawing a split sentence in which virtually all his prison time was suspended. A similar situation happened again in early 2013. But later that year he was arrested on a third-degree burglary charge, which brought the suspended sentence crashing down. According to the Alabama Department of Corrections, his guilty plea in October 2014 came with a 15-year sentence for the sex offender registration violation and a concurrent 15 years for the burglary charge.

Updated 4:51 p.m. CT Oct. 15, 2018



A Memphis man was convicted of a rape that occurred in 2000 after DNA linked him to the 18-year-old crime, according to the Shelby County District Attorney's Office.

David Hugo Johnson, 43, was convicted on Friday for the 2000 sexual assault that occurred in southwest Memphis, District Attorney Amy Weirich said.

Johnson, who is serving time in an Oklahoma prison on a burglary charge, will be sentenced to 15-to-25 years in prison at a hearing scheduled for next month with Judge Lee Coffee.

The woman told police she woke up to Johnson raising her bedroom window and climbing inside. Johnson then put a knife to her throat, threatened to kill her and then cut up her undergarments before he raped her
, the district attorney's office said.

Victim in unsolved 20-year-old Baton Rouge rape recognizes suspect at wedding reception
The suspect was arrested after a positive DNA match




Updated October 19 at 6:32 AM

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge police have arrested a Baker man in connection with a rape case that had been unsolved for over 20 years.

John Louis Davis, 38
, of Baker, was arrested on October 18 for allegedly raping a woman in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day 1998.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by WAFB, Davis struck up a conversation with the 18-year-old victim on Choctaw Drive before punching her and then raping her behind a building.

The victim immediately reported the rape and was taken to a local hospital. However, no suspect was developed in the case and it remained unsolved.

Investigators say 20 years later, the victim saw Davis at a wedding reception on June 3 and recognized him as the man who raped her.

The woman got Davis' name at the reception and then contacted the Baton Rouge Police Department. She later picked Davis out of a photo lineup of suspects.

Detectives obtained a search warrant to collect a DNA sample from Davis and submitted it to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab.

Suspect In 2013 Rape Charged In Lexington
October 18, 2018



LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– A Lexington man has been arrested in connection to a rape that happened five years ago.

Police say 43-year-old Bobby McGhee was taken into custody Wednesday at the Luther Lucket Correctional Center in La Grange.

According to an arrest citation, on the night of Nov. 8, 2013, the victim was trying to get into her residence when McGhee reportedly slipped in as she opened the door.

The citation goes on to say McGhee pushed the woman down and put his hands around her neck. He then forced the victim to perform oral sex on him and vaginally raped her.


After McGhee left, the victim went to the UK Hospital ER where she had a rape test performed and DNA was collected.

The DNA was later connected to McGhee.

Texas death row inmate linked by DNA to 1999 LSU student murder, police say
Oct 16, 2018 - 2:20 pm





Baton Rouge police believe a man on death row in Texas was the killer in a 1999 shooting death of an LSU student, linking him to the crime almost two decades later through DNA evidence.


Investigators on Tuesday issued a warrant for Travis Green, 49, after his DNA was matched to a glove found at the scene of the 1999 shooting death of 19-year-old Kassie Federer. Green is currently on death row in Livingston, Texas, for another slaying, that of a 19-year-old woman killed in Houston days before Federer's death in Baton Rouge, said police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola Jr.

Green is on death row in Texas after he was convicted in the Sept. 2, 1999 rape-slaying of Kristin Loesch in Houston, 11 days before Federer was fatally shot, records show. A 2007 Houston Chronicle article says Green was also found to be the perpetrator in the 1988 slaying of an 82-year-old woman in west Houston. Margaret McGinnis was sexually assaulted and strangled on July 13, 1988 in her home, the article says.

On 9/2/1999, Green entered the apartment of a 19 year old white female, raping and killing her.

DNA evidence confirmed the identity of Green as the assailant.

April 4, 2007 -- The suspect has been identified as Travis D. Green (b/m, DOB 11-1-68), who is currently an inmate at the Polunsky Unit of the Texas prison system.

The victim, Margaret McGinnis, 82, of 1805 Crocker, was found dead at the scene. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant E.S. Mehl reported:

On the morning of July 13,1988, Ms. McGinnis was found on the floor of her bedroom. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled. The attacker had entered the residence through the bedroom window and barricaded the door from the inside.

DNA helps nab man accused of raping woman, leaving her in trash bin 26 years ago, cops say
October 30, 2018 05:32 PM



DNA evidence led to the arrest of a North Carolina prison inmate in connection to a 26-year-old Charlotte rape case, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said in a news release Tuesday.

In June 1992, a 27-year-old woman was raped in the 2200 block of Rama Road after she accepted a ride home from a man, CMPD’s news release said. The assailant “dragged” the woman from his car and “forced” her into a dumpster , according to the news release. He then drove away, police said.

“The victim was treated at the hospital and a sexual assault kit was collected,” CMPD’s news release said. “The sexual assault kit was initially tested in 1992, and additional testing was completed on it in 2017 as a part of a federal grant CMPD received.”

Police said, “DNA evidence confirmed Kenneth McIllwaine as the suspect.”

Police make arrest in 21-year-old cold case murder
Updated: Nov 1, 2018 - 11:26 PM



SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Fulton County police have made an arrest in a 21-year-old homicide case, officials announced Thursday.

Fulton County police Chief Darryl Halbert said Jerry Lee, 61, was arrested this week in the 1997 murder of Lorrie Ann Smith, 28. Smith was shot to death in her home in South Fulton County on May 25, 1997.

Channel 2's Tyisha Fernandes spoke to South Fulton County police, who said they were able to use ancestry websites to finally solve the case.

Smith was shot in the back in her own bedroom at a home on Stonewall Tell Road. Police said there was no sign of forced entry, sexual assault or robbery.

It was clear Smith fought for her life. Police found a "significant amount" of the suspect's blood at the scene, but without modern DNA testing were not able to make a match in the state database.

That's where Ancestry.com came in to play. Investigators took DNA they collected from the crime scene and sent it to a DNA testing company called Parabon, which found a sim

Raeford man charged in 2001 rape, kidnapping



Updated Nov 2, 2018 at 10:16 AM

A Raeford man has been charged in connection with a cold case rape that happened in 2001, the Fayetteville Police Department said Friday.

Detectives investigated the case in 2001, and it was recently reopened by the Fayetteville Police Department’s Cold Case Sexual Assault Unit after sending off the sexual assault kit for DNA testing, police said in a news release.

Kunte Kinte Bethea, 39, of the 100 block of Lincoln Drive in Raeford, is charged with three counts of first degree rape, first degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of stolen property.

The victim was at an ATM on March 1, 2001, when Bethea forced his way into her car, kidnapped her, drove her to Hoke County and sexually assaulted her, the release said.

Bethea then stole the victim’s car, which was later recovered by the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office, the release said.
