(...)"Meanwhile, about 130 miles east of Manvel in Orange, Texas, Danny Davis had just given his DNA to a Texas Ranger, in hopes of finding his sister, Julie Davis, who went missing 33 years ago. The Texas Ranger was investigating the possibility Julie might have been a missing woman found dead in another part of the state.
But when Danny's DNA went into the state database, it matched Princess Blue's DNA. Investigators say with 99.9% certainty, Princess Blue is Julie Davis.
"I'm still trying to process that they found her. That it took so long," Danny told ABC13 over the phone from his home in Orange. "I wouldn't have believed it's her if that detective didn't tell me the DNA matched."
He said he had never heard of the Princess Blue case."
The family of Julie Davis, who was known as 'Princess Blue' before her identity was discovered, has been looking for her since 1990.abc13.com

And now, after 52 years, thanks to some slick genealogical work, both the victim and the alleged killer have been identified.
