The 2018 SEHIA Conference will be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Nov. 12 – 16, 2018.
Reston, Va. (November 2018) – Parabon® NanoLabs, a vertically integrated DNA technology company that develops next-generation forensic and therapeutic products, will be attending the 2018 Southeastern Homicide Investigators Association Conference (SEHIA), to be held at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Nov. 12 – 16, 2018.
Parabon representatives will be on hand to discuss its suite of Snapshot® Advanced DNA Analysis services, including Genetic Genealogy, DNA Phenotyping, a revolutionary forensic DNA technology that accurately predicts the physical appearance and ancestry of an unknown person from DNA, and its Kinship Inference service that can determine kinship between DNA samples out to six degrees of relatedness. The Snapshot suite of services can aid in generating investigative leads, narrowing suspect lists and identifying unknown remains.
Parabon’s newest service, Genetic Genealogy, is the combination of genetic analysis with traditional historical and genealogical research to study family history. For forensic investigators, it can be used to identify remains by tying the DNA to a family with a missing person or to point to the likely identity of a perpetrator. It has already led to arrests in several high-profile cold cases.
SEHIA brings together homicide detectives, crime scene investigators, state and district attorneys, medicolegal investigators and those responsible for the tireless pursuit of justice for the victims of homicide and their families. The goal of the conference is to enhance the dialogue between members of law enforcement tasked with investigating the most heinous and impactful life events faced by members of society. This is achieved by presenting lessons learned through experience during the lengthy and diverse investigations necessary to bring closure to such cases. The conference creates an atmosphere of law enforcement sharing, which can be maintained and drawn upon through SEHIA’s resources.
