It will be great news when the "suspect" is indeed convicted.

Until then....

My overriding concern is that the RCMP, family and public are very anxious for a conviction, heck, so am I. But I also don't want an overturned conviction in 14 years either. I'm sure the family of the murdered 16 year old also said, "great news" when a man was put away in jail.

In fact, just google "overturned conviction" and see what I mean. There a more than even I ever dreamed.

It is very good news that "they" have someone arrested.
Lets just hope the RCMP have the right person arrested thats responsible for something that took place 16 years ago, and never was solved.
This all sounds too good to be true.
And, even if they have someone arrested, will the evidence be enough to convict?
It will be interesting, to say the least, and possibly offer some closure to others.
I just hope this isn't another RCMP screwup!

Police stated at the conference that they had the killer's DNA and expressed optimism in cracking the case.


that's what got my hopes up.
i hope the lab that does the DNA doesn't screw up.

Ya, it does happen Queen. But having been living in Kelowna at the time I can honestly say the years 1993 through 1995 were among the worst I have ever lived through when it came to such horrific events occurring and going unsolved.

I will follow with great interest as the developments in this case unfold, and hope the evidence is sufficient to make it ironclad and without doubt. I will be particularly interested when the accused individual is identified, for only rarely is such an occurrance just a "one of" scenario.

I went to School with Jennifer. This is fantastic news, I always hoped her killer would be caught.

In most of the cases where people are released its DNA tests that help do that..... If they have creditable DNA evidence to the case and can prove that their is no contamination .. They might have some thing....... I wonder if the person they have is local resident..............

that's something else. they've had the DNA evidence for a long time. sounds like they just matched it? that doesn't happen because of running a red light.

Ya, exactly ferri, and I am aware of at least one other case where hair samples were found that were definitely not a match to the victim. Hopefully they still exist, waiting for a match to eventually show up with the technological and evidence preservation improvements that have occurred over the past 16 years.

Are DNA samples now taken as a matter of policy now whenever someone is arrested, like taking fingerprints?
