  • After nearly 50 years, DNA helped identify a Tennessee woman found dead in the dunes of Provincetown. Ruth Marie Terry was identified through a DNA sample from her biological son using investigative genealogy. We find out more about who Terry was, and how this technology could solve other cold cases.
