Authorities arrested Christine Warren, 50, after surreptitiously collecting her DNA through a bogus mailing they sent her

A Seattle woman has been arrested over the cold case death of her newborn baby in 1997 after genealogy sleuths who helped capture Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo matched her DNA through an ancestry website.

The body of an unidentified newborn, dubbed Baby Boy Doe by officials, was found in a gas station trash can in 1997, but the case went unsolved for 23 years.  

But a DNA breakthrough by genealogy experts who helped catch DeAngelo in 2018 has now identified Christine Marie Warren as the child’s mother, and she was arrested in Seattle last week.
