6. Can a law enforcement officer get my DNA from a DNA testing kit company?
Well, yes, so you must think twice before getting tested by a company like Ancestry or 23andMe. Or at least read the company’s policies because most of them will comply with any government requests such as certain pieces of information about their users and, of course, DNA samples.
For instance, back in 2018, DNA evidence from Ancestry was actually used to catch Joseph James DeAngelo, a.k.a. Golden State Killer. So, if it weren’t for Ancestry, maybe Californians were still terrorized and traumatized by this infamous man.
