This family’s DNA is the best DNA ever

dna.jpgChristopher Holland was arrested and charged last month with the rape and murder of a 17-year-old back in 1983. Pretty gruesome crime (she was raped, strangled and stabbed in her own bedroom), so it’s good to know that the purported man behind the crime is now locked up. Part of the evidence used by the cops in tying the crime to Holland was DNA samples from two of Holland’s brothers.

But, whoops — turns out that the DNA submitted by one of the brothers, David Holland, matched another unsolved crime. So David is now in jail with his brother Christopher, as it looks like he was behind the 2001 rape of of an 81-year-old woman. (Eighty. One. Years. Old. What the hell?) Says the assistant deputy district attorney: “We have to assume he didn’t expect this to happen.” You think?
