Investigator say genealogy DNA and reverse paternity testing led them to Perea. They used programs called GEDmatch, an open-source website, and Family Tree DNA to find people who shared common DNA to the suspect. GEDmatch was used by law enforcement to identify a suspect in the Golden State Killer case in California.

“Anybody that has their ancestry results or their 23 and Me results that want to help law enforcement solve cases, go to GEDmatch, upload your data and say ‘Yes’ to the question ‘Do you want law enforcement to have your data?'” Morrissey urged.

“It was Family Tree DNA that gave us the most significant lead in this case. For a few hundred dollars, law enforcement can upload their sample into Family Tree… and then you search for people with common DNA to the DNA that you’re looking for.”

Jeannie Moore 's killer was identified thanks to advancements in technology. On September 10, Colorado’s Jefferson County Sherriff Jeff Shrader announced that the testing proved Donald Steven Perea was responsible for the kidnapping, sexual assault, and murder of Jeannie Moore in 1981 .

“Then there’s a whole system where genealogist can look at it and say ‘OK, based on how much you share, this is likely a first cousin,’ or ‘This is likely an uncle’ or ‘This is likely, you know, some other relative.'” Morrissey explained. “What this allows you to do is go out to about fourth cousins. On average, a person has about 850 cousins out there in the world.”

Morrissey said they used DNA from Perea’s biological daughter to match him to samples taken from the crime scene.

“There’s nobody else out there in the world that would have a statistic like we have in this case,” Morrissey said.

“The only thing that is not a good thing about today is that we can’t hold this individual accountable because God took him before we got the chance,” he said.

Morrissey said Perea was accused of a kidnapping and rape in Wesminster and was out on bond when he raped and murdered Moore. He was 23 years old at the time.

“He had been arrested for sexual assault where he had a weapon and he had been charged but he had posted bond and was out when he picked up this victim and did what he did to her.”

Perea was eventually convicted for the rape and was in prison from 1982 to 1985. Investigators say he died from health problems in 2012.

Investigators thanked Perea’s family for cooperating and helping them solve the case.
