When was DNA testing first used by the police?

The DNA also helped identify local baker, Colin Pitchfork, as the perpetrator of the murders.

His DNA matched what officials discovered on the crime scene, marking him out as the murderer.

Police arrested Pitchfork in 1987, and he later plead guilty to his crimes, resulting in life imprisonment.
