In this paper we present the development of forensic analysis and how Statistics has addressed the difficult areas of controversy in identifying individuals. The basic model of VNTR analysis of DNA evidence has succeeded conventional means of identification such as the use of blood groups and serum proteins. The su-periority of DNA methods has broadened its use in the forensic community however it is also heavily scrutinized statistically due to the probabilistic interpretation of compared samples as well as the difficulty posed by the large number of parameters in the model. As we discuss the methodologies and statistical models used to analyze forensic information from DNA we introduce a stochastic method that can be used to provide solutions to the common problems in forensic analysis.
