Artificial Insemination Nightmare Grabs the Attention of the News Media + Free DNA Testing for Parkinson's Patients
Further to my blog posting yesterday indicating how an artificial insemination nightmare was uncovered by consumer DNA testing for ancestry purposes, CeCe Moore (Your Genetic Genealogist), who helped the family identify the biological father and wrote the blog posting Artificial Insemination Nightmare Revealed by DNA Test, has blogged an update: Artificial Insemination Story Covered on Salt Lake City KUTV CBS Affiliate and University of Utah Releases a Statement. (As of 2 Mar 2014, the link to the video of the initial coverage by KUTV is no longer available, but there is an Archived Video Story.)
Less than 3 weeks after my last blog posting, The Next Twist for DNA Testing: DonorChildren.com, CeCe Moore (Your Genetic Genealogist) posted an unbelievable article yesterday, Artificial Insemination Nightmare Revealed by DNA Test. This outlines how DNA testing revealed that a child ("Ashley") who was supposedly conceived using artificial insemination using sperm from "Jeff" (Ashley's Dad), the husband of her mother "Paula", was actually the biological child of a convicted felon, Thomas Lippert. Apparently Tom, a former law professor, had kidnapped a female student and given her electric shock therapy with the aim of making her fall in love with him. Although he did serve some prison time, he got off lightly after hiring one of OJ Simpson's attorneys, F. Lee Bailey, to defend him, who negotiated a plea bargain for a lesser charge. Subsequently Tom Lippert worked at the front desk and in the lab of a fertility clinic, Reproductive Medical Technologies Clinic in Salt Lake City (a.k.a. University of Utah's Fertility Clinic) from 1986-1995. After having difficulty conceiving, Paula and Jeff had been referred to the same fertility clinic, and Jeff's sperm was supposed to have been used for conceiving Ashley.
