For almost 15 years the brutal murder and sexual assault of 18-year-old Brittany Phillips in Tulsa, Oklahoma has gone unsolved. Dedicated investigators from the Tulsa Police Department have worked tirelessly spending thousands of hours looking into hundreds of leads and conducting hundreds of DNA tests of potential suspects. All of Brittany’s friends and classmates were interviewed and cooperated with the investigation. One by one they were ruled tout as their DNA samples came back and did not match the DNA of the attacker. Random murders where the victim did not know their attacker are often the most difficult to solve.
At the same time as investigators have been working continuously on the case Brittney’s mother Dr. Maggie Zingman, a Trauma Therapist has been on a quest for justice to keep the case from going cold and find out who killed her daughter and why? Brittany was well loved and liked by everyone that knew her.
Over the last 13 years Dr. Zingman has driven over 200,000 miles traveling to all 48 continental states speaking about her daughters unsolved case, other unsolved cases, and bringing attention to the critical issue of DNA samples being at the time of an arrest for certain crimes.
If DNA samples were taken at the time of arrest for violent crimes in all 50 states rather than after conviction it could prevent a significant number of violent crimes from happening, since offenders would know their DNA is on file and think twice before committing a crime, knowing the risk of being caught is almost certain given the technology available today.
