DNA sweep

The New York Times fronts an interesting story about a police department's efforts to collect DNA from every man in a small Cape Cod town. The investigation into fashion writer Christa Worthington's murder had come up empty after three years, so police are asking all 790 men in town for DNA.

The Innocence Project's Barry Scheck criticized the sweep, saying the process was being done poorly.
