CSI: Utah?!!! Genealogy aims to help amnesia sufferer

Just read an interesting tale at Kimberley's Genealogy Blog. An attempt to use genealogy to help identify a sufferer of amnesia is currently underway in Richmond Hill, Georgia, in the US, where a man calling himself Benjamin Kyle was found badly beaten up. A Y-DNA test has been taken and genealogists are trying to find a match for a possible relative.

Is this the first instalment of an interesting new genealogical detective series - CSI: Utah..?!!! Fascinating stuff! More at http://genealogy.about.com/b/2009/02/17/using-genealogy-to-identify-an-amnesia-victim.htm , including links to the DNA project involved.

(PS: Utah has nothing to do with it, but it seems to be the only placename synonymous with genealogy!)
