I ran across this article and thought folks would be interested in the very critical role DNA testing played at one point..

Sad case.

So, he found his sister via mtDNA (thus same mother) but no mention of Y testing so I guess it's assumed his sister's father was his father too. Admittedly they are facially similar.

So, it seems he was adopted out?
