This has been done before. In 2003, the swedish minister of foreign affairs, Anna Lindh, was murdered in a shopping mall. Once the police had a suspect and samples of his hair, they requested a DNA sample from a national blood bank containing samples from all newborns since 1975 and matched it. The blood bank was originally set up for research only but has since been used in this high profile murder case and for identifying victims of the 2004 tsunami. There's an ongoing investigation on making the entire blood bank available to police authorities, meaning 3,3 million blood samples will be available for matching.
