The next 4 rapes, all taking place in other districts, showed that the rapist was not bound to a specific area (and accordingly was given the title of "the M-25 rapist").
The main reason for that is the individual genetic information inherently included in the sample, which is not relevant for identification of its owner . It is feared that samples may be used in research, not necessarily relevant to the initial definition of forensic DNA databases as identification means . Two types of this phenomenon, termed as "function creep", may be considered: (a) Utilization of information stored in a given database for further development of means serving its initial general purpose, and (b) Its utilization for completely different purposes .
