Detectives in Florida worked for years trying to capture Sondra Better’s killer. Despite the blood, fingerprints, and DNA he left behind, he seemed to disappear. That was until Todd Barket, 51, applied for a job a few months ago that required a background check and fingerprints. His prints matched those the police submitted to a national database back in 1998, after the murder. Barket has since been arrested and now faces first degree murder charges.
This is yet another reminder of the many benefits of background screening. Not only does it help protect employers, employees, and workplaces, but it may, as in this instance, bring painful, but needed closure to people who have been looking for answers for a very long time.
