How This Man’s Unique Void Helped Criminal Investigations, Including the Angie Dodge Case

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Jared Bradley is the president of M-Vac, a game-changing device for collecting DNA from crime scenes.

The M-Vac launched in 2007 in the food industry and then, five years later, pivoted to forensic medicine.

“It’s a wet vacuum that sprays a sterile solution on the evidence and sucks it up. Any type of DNA that is on a rough or porous surface – it can collect it 40-50 times easier than a swab,” says Bradley.

Bradley spoke with EastIdahoNews.com at CrimeCon in Las Vegas. He said the M-Vac was used in the Angie Dodge murder case in Idaho Falls and that officers used it in other high-profile investigations, including the disappearance of Susan Powell.

In addition to his work at M-Vac, Bradley hosts a podcast called “Anything related to crime”. He has produced over 100 episodes featuring investigators, crime scene analysts and more.
