Diane Baughman is a State of California certified Crime and Intelligence Analyst. She has been in Southern California Law Enforcement for 26 years, with the last sixteen employed by the County of Orange.
As a Crime Analyst III in the OC District Attorney’s Office, she is assigned to the Science & Technology Unit and the DA’s Investigative Genetic Genealogy Team within that unit. She first started working with Investigative Genetic Genealogy a few years ago while supporting sworn investigators on a cold case homicide tasks force. Finding it a perfect blend of her law enforcement investigative background and her personal genealogy hobby, she is very excited about sharing these investigation processes and techniques to see many more cases solved.
