Identical twin brothers in France are being held in police custody after police DNA tests were inconclusive over which one of them committed a sexual assault. The test did confirm that one of the 24-year-old unemployed delivery drivers, Elwin or Yohan, did commit six sexual assaults throughout Marseille between September 2012 and January 2013. However, since their DNA is nearly identical and a victim could not tell them apart in a lineup, the real perpetrator is unknown. Police would have to shell out nearly 1 million Euros (roughly than $1,319,285 USD) to pay for a sophisticated test that would be able to parse the minute differences in the twins' DNA.
