  Woman Claims She Has DNA Evidence to Prove She is Girl Who Went Missing in 2000 Kaylynn Stevenson was researching her biological family when a picture of missing Brittany Renee Williams popped up. She immediately recognized herself.Kaylynn Stevenson, of Fort Wayne, Indiana claimed she has DNA evidence proving she is Brittany Renee Williams, a girl who went missing at the age of seven back in 2000, WWBT reported.

Thanks to a new DNA technique, a great-granddaughter of the famous indigenous tribal chief Sitting Bull has been identified. A research team for Eske Willerslev from the University of Cambridge and the Lundbeck Foundation Geogenetics Center in Denmark presented the new method on Wednesday in the journal "Science Advances". It is therefore the first time that on the basis of genetic material a family relationship between a historical personality and its living offspring can be detected.

Willerslev, according to their own information, a way to check the relationship with gender-specific "autosomaler" DNA. With the method, the descendants of other historical figures could be identified, from the infamous bandit Jesse James to the Russian Tsar family. The requirement is merely a DNA sample of the deceased.

Plane crash kills 2, burns homes in California neighborhood

  Plane crash kills 2, burns homes in California neighborhood SANTEE, Calif. (AP) — A twin-engine plane that killed at least two people and left a swath of destruction in a San Diego suburb nose-dived into the ground after repeated warnings that it was flying dangerously low, according to a recording. The Cessna 340 smashed into a UPS van, killing the driver, and then hit houses just after noon Monday in Santee, a suburb of 50,000 people. The pilot also is believed to have died, and at least two people on the ground were hurt, including a woman who was helped out the window of a burning home by neighbors.An investigator from the National Transportation Safety Board was expected to be at the scene Tuesday morning, according to an agency tweet.

In previous genetic studies, researchers are looking for matches between the DNA in the Y chromosome passed on in the male line. If the deceased person was female, the DNA is considered in more detail in the mitochondria. In the case of Sitting Bull, however, both methods could not be used because it is a male ancestor that is maternal with its great-grand chalk.

In the current case, the scientists therefore examined autosomal DNA from a chief to whistle and then developed a calculation method to compare them to the DNA of the descendants and 13 other members of the Lakota Sioux tribe. The researchers tested whether similarities in the genome actually indicate a close relationship.

of the great-granddaughter, whose relationship had often been doubted with the legendary tribal chief, had historical recordings such as birth and death corporate customers of the chief, the kinship could never finally prove. He searched for a proof of a genetic relationship to allow the mortal remains of his ancestor in another place.

Sitting Bull, who was actually called Tatanka-Iyotankka, led around 1500 Lakota warriors in the famous battle at Little Bighorn in 1876. The indigenous people killed the US General George Armstrong Custer and its five companies. The chief was shot in 1890 by police officers on behalf of the US government.
