From FOX News: Blood Match in Rape and Murder of NYC Grad Student

Police say they found blood and DNA evidence on plastic ties allegedly used to restrain St. Guillen during her rape and murder last month. They say that evidence links the crime to Littlejohn.

New York police say they will seek an indictment against Darryl Littlejohn for the murder of Boston-native Imette St. Guillen.

UPDATE: AP; NYPD: DNA Link Between Bouncer, Student

NEW YORK (AP) — DNA evidence found on the plastic ties that were used to bind strangled student Imette St. Guillen has been matched to prime suspect Darryl Littlejohn, police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Sunday.

The New York Police Department commissioner said authorities would be taking that match and other evidence to a grand jury to get an indictment against Littlejohn for the murder of the graduate student last month. He didn’t give a date for when the grand jury would get the case.

DNA Links Littlejohn To Murder Of St. Guillen

(CBS) NEW YORK Darryl Littlejohn has been named the prime suspect in the murder investigation of Imette St. Guillen after DNA evidence linked the 41-year-old bouncer to the crime, NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly said at a press conference Sunday.

The forensic match was made after Littlejohn’s blood was found on hand ties used to bound St. Guillen, Kelly said.

“This is very significant development. When you talk about DNA here you are talking about the certainty of 1 in a trillion, so it’s a very important piece of evidence for us,” Kelly said. “The investigation is going forward and has certainly not reached a finality. There’s a lot more work to be done.”
