A Mosquito Help Apprehend A Criminal

In Helsinki, Finland, in 2008 a mosquito helped crack a case. 

A car had been stolen and when it was found, the police scoured it for clues. 

One officer found a dead mosquito that had drawn someone’s blood before death.

Extracting DNA from the mosquito, they were able to find the thief in one of their existing DNA databases.
