The Potomac River Rapist refers to a serial rapist and murderer who was active in the Washington , D.C. metropolitan area from 1991 to 1998.

Warrick was identified as a suspect in the sexual assaults and the murder through forensic genealogy, he said.

Several of the attacks occurred along footpaths next to the Potomac River, which runs through Washington.

The last known attack attributed to the "Potomac River rapist" was in August 1998, when a 29-year-old woman was beaten to death with a rock while walking home from a party.

Police said they managed to solve the cold case by matching DNA left behind by the suspect at the crime scenes to family trees in online genealogy databases.

Several high-profile criminal cases have been solved recently through this technique, including that of the notorious serial killer and rapist known as the "Golden Gate Killer."

Joseph DeAngelo, a former policeman, is suspected of at least a dozen murders and 50 rapes between 1976 and 1986 and is awaiting trial in California.

DeAngelo was arrested in April 2018 after investigators tracked him down by plugging crime scene DNA into an open-source genealogy database.
