In cases of rape, robbery, murder – really anything – it is always safe to assume it was a Black.
Authorities in Montgomery County used a rape suspect’s DNA to create a composite illustration of him.
The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office released an illustration of a suspect accused of raping a 19-year-old woman at gunpoint in Norristown Farm Park last August.
The victim described the suspect as a medium-skinned black man in his 20s or early 30s, between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-10, with an average build.
The DNA samples collected at the crime scene by police were sent to Parabon NanoLabs in Reston, Virginia, to create a composite illustration of the suspect through something called Snapshot DNA Phenotyping.
