Here is described a sibling incest case involving a brother and his underage sister, both native from IvoryCoast. A police investigation was conducted, and suspects were restricted to two subjects, specifically thefather and older brother of the underage girl. However, no clear indication of the perpetrator could beobtained, and therefore the judge demanded a paternity testing. DNA analysis was conducted on theunderage girl, her daughter and her older brother, while the father’s victim refused to provide his ownDNA sample. The analysis of autosomal STRs was supported by X-STRs. As expected, the latter analysisproved to be decisive in the resolution of the case, confirming that the brother was the female newborn’sfather and the rapist of his underage sister.
