DNA tests have made negro crimes much easier to solve.
Can you imagine if we still had to rely upon facial recognition with these apes?
Forensic evidence and a bit of luck led Oceanside authorities to arrest a transient in the slaying of a 77-year-old man, whose wife found him dead when she came home from an overnight work shift two months ago, police said Monday.
Detectives had surmised that the August slaying of John Roth may have happened during a botched burglary. On Sunday they arrested Carey Lamont Reid, Jr. in a parking lot near the home of the victim.
Police said the suspect had left DNA at the scene. On Friday, police learned that the DNA belonged to Reid, a 21-year-old transient, police said.
And then Sunday, someone called to report a person sleeping in the parking lot of a tire shop on North Coast Highway, not far from Roth’s home on Tremont Street.
That person was Reid, who was subsequently arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of murder.
Reid remained jailed Monday and held without bail. His arraignment could be Tuesday, according to online jail records.
Oceanside police spokesman Tom Bussey called it “a coincidence” and “a strange thing.”
“Things just fell into place,” Bussey said. “We were notified (of the DNA match) and two days later, we get a call of an individual sleeping in a parking lot of a tire shop — and it turns out to be our suspect.”
