A cold case from 2012 is the first sexual assault case to be closed after the state of Wisconsin started testing old DNA kits.
A jury yesterday found Leroy Whittenberger guilty of assaulting a teenager in the town of New London. The DNA kit from the case sat on a shelf until it was tested in 2017. The state has tested about four-thousand old DNA kits from across Wisconsin. Thirty five of those tests have been referred for charges.
