I thought only Indian police went on trials to search for things untraceable, for years. But, the German Police has left me in splits after doin this.
Police in Germany hunted a sinister phantom killer for two years after finding the same DNA at 39 different crime scenes - only to discover that the source was a woman who made the cotton buds used to collect the sample!
The police were stumped. They eventually offered a 300,000 euro reward to find the killer. It's no surprise the money was never claimed, however, because the so-called 'phantom killer' was a complete myth! Detectives had apparently been tracking the DNA of a factory worker who packaged cotton buds used by the police to collect samples, according to 'Stern.de'.
Her DNA was found over and over again: in bottles, tank lids, on bullets – and once even on a biscuit!
Nice, finally the detectives managed to think out of the culprits. er box. And well, 300,000 euro award!! The cotton bud maker should herslf have claimed the award. She would never have to ever make the cotton buds again, and the industry would get a huge boost for sure. Everyone would want to make cotton buds, and ensure that they have spitted on each a considerable number of times.
