It is possible that you can take a hair sample to the police to get someone's identity. However, in this case, I recommend that you use a private company to help you because the police can only come in when there is violence.

the police have more pressing issues and will not help in this personal matter, yvoneeny. Their labs are backed up with tests for REAL victims waiting, some as long as several years backed up. This is a non issue to any police dep't.

The police have more pressing issues to handle than if your husband is cheating on you. The identity of the supposed woman he may or may not be cheating on you with will remain a deep dark secret if that person does not have a felony record with DNA on file, as is required for felons in many states. A private company? Again, even if they analyze the hair, all they can do is find if there's drug use showing up in the person's hair, not WHO they are without that DNA on file as for convicted felons, & no one is saying this woman (if she exists) may be a felon. How about you sit him down and ASK him if your marriage is over? If he ISN'T cheating & you go thru all these changes, its going to be over anyhow, you know that, right? If you have OTHER proof, or if you just have that "gut feeling" he's cheating, he probably is, but you'll destroy any feelings he has or any chance of a reconciliation if you go trying to drag the police (who will NOT get involved without violence in your home)or a private company into your personal business. Think real hard here, Stucki.....

No! They're not going to waste taxpayers dollars to see if your hubby is cheating! You go ahead & go down & ask them! I wanna know what they tell you! You're gonna have to hire a private detective or follow him yourself!!

No, the police will not accept your hair sample unless it is in connection with a crime. You may want to contact a private lab to have it analysed or a private detective to find out if your husband is cheating on you.

I am sorry if he is cheating on you, but you need to get solid proof he really is cheating, before you decide what to do.

Good luck and god bless! : d

Yes you can get somebodies ID from a hair sample, but the police won't accept it. You can hire a private investigator that deals with husbands cheating. You could also get a car tracker and your husband will never know;)
