Still No Outrage in Cape Cod

The police are busy providing excuses for their pathetic attempt at a murder investigation, but no one seems to mind too much. The investigation consisted of taking DNA samples when convenient, sending them off to a lab, and waiting around for results. In the interim there was apparently some pointless harassment of former boyfriends based on the astonishing revelations that an attractive single woman in her 40's was having sex. I fired off the following letter to the editor of the Boston Globe, but I'm not sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for it to be published.

"I have been following the Worthington case in your on-line edition as your coverage has been the most complete. Still, I am astonished that I have not seen any questions regarding the failure to identify the killer as being of West African ancestry at the outset. There are numerous commercial labs that will, for less than $500, provide an ethnic profile based on a DNA sample. While not 100% accurate, it would seem to be a rather piddling investment to have been able to narrow down the list of suspects. Surely this would have saved dozens of people needless anguish for the several years this investigation dragged on aimlessly. I would think there would be more outrage over the poor detective work evidenced in this case. But so far, the outrage seems rather muted."

Apparently this West African couldn't run as fast as the others you profiled in an earlier commentary.

No, he sure didn't run - apparently he stayed in Cape Cod the whole time. They didn't get his DNA sample for 2 years because he moved - somewhere else in Cape Code! Some crackerjack detectives up there, I tell ya.
