Op. Innisbrook -DNA traps care home rapist
Female residents at a care home, most of which had some sort of disabilities, reported that they had been raped by one of the care home workers. The suspect denied the offences.
Numerous mattresses were submitted to KFS for semen examination – semen matching the suspect was obtained on more than one of the mattresses. The suspect stated that he had stayed at the premises as part of his duty and his semen could be on the mattresses. He also stated that the mattresses were sometimes moved around.
KFS scientists were requested to attend the bedroom of the last victim and to examine it for the presence of semen. They carried out an examination of the carpet, walls and furniture using crime-lites and a chemical test for semen. A small area of semen was detected on the carpet near to the foot of the bed. The semen matched the DNA profile of the suspect.
