Professional DNA Collecting – The Scary Side of Clients

Collecting DNA samples from individuals can be a very intimate situation. In most cases, the clients are nervous and anxious, which is understandable since the DNA test results can be life changing. Generally, meeting with clients and performing the collection goes well and everyone is on their best behavior. However, sometimes we find ourselves in emotionally charged situations and it can be a little unsettling, especially when the collection is performed by a mobile collector at the home of the clients. Regardless or where the collection takes place, we always hope that there is no fighting, or worse, violence, while performing the DNA collection service.

A recent news report reminds us that we need to always be careful  - we never know what the true situation is and we never know if the people that we are collecting DNA from are sane. For example:

According to the Arlington, Texas police, a man by the name of Thomas Olivas, age 29, was arrested in the death of his ex-girlfriend, Mechelle Danielle Gandy, age 26, and her 1 year old child, a boy, Asher Rion Olivas.

Police reported that, on March 2011, Thomas murdered the mother and child by stabbing Mechelle to death, and then dousing the room where Asher was sleeping in his crib with gasoline, and then lighting the apartment on fire. His motives are said to be that he did not want to pay child support and called Asher “the devil’s child” on Facebook. A forensic DNA paternity test was performed using the child’s remains and as it turned out, Thomas Olivas WAS the father of the child. The mother and child were buried in Moore Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Arlington.

It is these types of terrible tragedies that concern us. We realize that we are working with people who could be criminally insane, dangerous and emotionally unstable. It’s not something that we wish to be caught up in. We feel for any family that has to endure such a terrible ordeal!
