Using DNA evidence from this investigation, Parabon NanoLabs produced trait predictions for a person of interest in the Nancy Elaine Anderson fatal stabbing case, Honolulu police said. Individual predictions were made for the subject’s ancestry, eye color, hair color, skin color, freckling, and face shape. By combining these attributes of appearance, a Snapshot composite was produced depicting what the the suspect may have looked like at 25 years old.
