STRmix™ Used to Charge Suspects in Two Florida Murder Cases

22 02 2018

WASHINGTON February 22, 2018 STRmix™ – the sophisticated forensic software used to resolve mixed DNA profiles previously thought to be too complex to interpret – has been used to charge suspects in two separate murder cases in Florida. In the first case, police used STRmix™ to decipher DNA mixtures found on a firearm, clothing, and other items found in a car stolen from the Jupiter, FL home at which the February 2017 shootings took place. This allowed investigators to arrest and charge Marcus Steward with the murders of Sean Henry, Brandi El-Salhy, and Kelli Doherty. Another individual, Christopher Vasata, previously had been arrested in the case. Use of STRmix™ in a second case enabled the Sarasota County (FL) Sheriff’s Office to charge Delmer Smith with murder and sexual battery in the April 2009 death of Georgann Lee Smith. STRmix™ was used by DNA Labs International to interpret multiple profiles of DNA extracted from the victim’s clothes, and ultimately identify Delmer...
