DNA from 2006 Rape Leads To Charges against Indiana Man

A Lawrence County, Indiana man faces rape and burglary charges after his DNA matched a sample taken following a 2006 sexual assault.

47-year-old Jamison Beedie of Heltonville was arrested Friday.

He is being held in the Monroe County Jail.

A woman reported being raped inside her apartment in 2006 at knifepoint.

The man ran off when her boyfriend arrived.

Bloomington police were notified Tuesday by the state police that DNA from the rape matched a sample taken following Beedie’s arrest late last year in a separate case in Lawrence County.
