Bear Brook Podcast, Genetic Genealogy and Privacy


Two barrels. Four bodies. And the decades-long mystery that led to a serial killer. A podcast about a cold case that's changing how murders will be investigated forever.  D.N.A testing was crucial in identifying the victims and finding the killer, and has become a powerful new tool for crime investigators and law enforcement. But should we be concerned about privacy issues?


  • Albert "Buzz" Scherr - Director of the Trial Advocacy Program at the UNH School of Law, and a nationally recognized authority on forensic DNA evidence. Scherr teaches courses in criminal procedure, evidence, expert witnesses and scientific evidence, genetics and the law and trial advocacy.
  • Jason Moon - NHPR reporter and host of NHPR's Bear Brook podcast.
