Detectives have cracked open a cold-case murder file, which includes a single DNA sample. Forensic scientists then test the genetic material, expecting it to confirm cops’ initial suspicions as to who committed the gruesome crime. But the results that come back are stunning. They point to a police officer as the person responsible for murder.

It could have been easy to miss the DNA sample left behind on Sherri Rasmussen’s body. The nurse had also bruises and bullet holes marring her body, which might well have made it harder to notice. But one detective happened to see tooth marks on her arm. They swabbed the DNA and saved it in a vial, probably never suspecting that it’d solve the case more than two decades later.
