Here's a good news update to a Tulsa rape case the News on 6 told you about recently. Tulsa Police detectives were frustrated because they have a suspect in a rape that used to be an ex-con and had given a DNA sample when he was in prison.
But because Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation analyzes all those samples and has a backlog of about 12,000 cases, detectives were told it'd be a year before they could get the DNA of a man to see if he was guilty.
After our story aired, OSBI called Tulsa's detectives and told them they found the man's DNA sample and were rushing it through, weâ€™ll let you know if it's a match.
