A Pennsylvania wedding DJ admitted Tuesday to raping and strangling to death an elementary school teacher whose 26-year cold case was solved with help from DNA submitted to a genealogy database by his half-sister.
In court Tuesday, Raymond Rowe, 50, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Christy Mirack, online court records show.
Rowe went by the stage name DJ Freez and claimed on his now-defunct website he worked as a DJ for celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan, as well as at events featuring Sting, The Eagles and Kenny Kravitz.
He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Yes, it’s creepout to the max.
Doesn’t Pennsylvania execute their killers any more or do they just want to keep them alive on “humanitarian grounds”?
She is your second-cousin-once-removed. (Her children - if any - would be exactly your second-cousins.)
No. "Recreational murder" is the term used within law enforcement to describe these types of killings. It's what serial killers do.
She is my second cousin. In kinship, the common ancestor determines the state of kinship. Generational position is irrelevant.
Im glad he was caught but am I the only one creeped out by how these geneology sites seem to be front operations for Big Brother?
Nope, I’m creeped out too. Makes me think of Gattaca, a bit.
Of course, as a military veteran (USN 1988-1992), the government has my DNA on file already, but even I’m leery of submitting to ancestry.com/23-and-me/whatever.
So, you're saying that my nephew is in fact my cousin - because his grandparents are also my parents.
The kinship you share is through your sibling. That is what he is your nephew.
The Browns Chicken massacre.
