Fort Worth, TX — The DNA testing of bones recently sent to the University of North Texas Health Science Center from the now-closed Dozier School for Boys in the Florida panhandle will likely take months to complete.
After University of South Florida researchers announced they’d unearthed 55 bodies at Dozier — 24 more than official records said were buried there — officials sent bone and tooth samples from 5 of the bodies to Texas for testing.
For more than 30 years, the mystery of who brutally raped and murdered Priscilla Lee Strole, 40, inside her Fairfield home remained unresolved.
Thanks to forensic breakthroughs, including a national fingerprint database and DNA evidence collected at the scene of the grisly murder, and the persistent efforts of a cold case detective team, the mystery has been solved, police said Tuesday.

ANKENY, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) — It’s a CSI fan’s dream – but the DCI crime lab in Ankeny is far from the lights, camera and flash of Hollywood.
“We spend a lot of time doing the paperwork,” Lab Supervisor Paul Bush said.
However, the 52 men and women here do more than that. It’s their job to gather evidence from hundreds of Iowa crimes every year. The lab consists of several areas – guns and ballistics to drug analysis, handwriting, and fingerprints,
