Bonnie Craig, an 18-year-old student at the University of Alaska Anchorage, was abducted on her way to class in September of 1994. That afternoon her body was found floating 10 miles south in a creek. After 13 years, semen found on Craig’s body was finally matched in CODIS to Kenneth Dion, who was serving time at a New Hampshire prison for a series of armed robberies. Prior to 2000, Alaska did not file DNA profiles in the system, and so Dion’s DNA was never taken for crimes he committed before Craig’s murder. Because of this, Karen Foster, Bonnie’s mother, proposed a bill that would improve Alaska’s DNA collection requirements. In August of 2008, the Alaska legislature passed the “Bonnie Craig’s Amendments,” which require state investigators to enter the DNA of individuals arrested for felonies into CODIS within 90 days of the crime.
