Casting Wide DNA Net to Solve Mass. Murder Case

Steve Young of member station WCAI reports that police in the Massachusetts community of Truro are asking men on the street to open wide -- for a mouth swab that will pick up a sample of their DNA. The voluntary DNA sweep is intended to help solve a three-year-old murder case. But many men are refusing to participate.
