Two Sets of Viable DNA Found at Potential Tulsa Race Massacre Burial Site

Two sets of viable DNA have been recovered from remains found at a potential Tulsa Race Massacre mass burial site.

The lab responsible for processing, analyzing, and mapping the genealogy of the obtained DNA said in a virtual meeting Tuesday that “we’ve got two good samples, and we’re really excited to move on in the process.”

Danny Hellwig is the Laboratory Development Director for Intermountain Forensics, the Utah-based lab where the 14 remains discovered last year were sent for analysis.

Hellwig said that out of the 14 remains, only one bone and one tooth from two of the remains contained enough viable DNA to move forward with the genealogy mapping.
