Undated handout photo issued by Hampshire Police of David Hilder. The UK's first cat DNA database has been created and was used in court to help convict Hilder of manslaughter on July 30. University of Leicester forensic scientists revealed Wednesday Aug.14, 2013 that they compiled data from 152 cats around the country which they now hope to publish so it can be used in future crime investigations. The database was used to demonstrate the likelihood that cat hairs found on the dismembered torso of Hampshire man David Guy belonged to Tinker, a cat owned by main suspect David Hilder.
