Results are released in R.I. girl's request for DNA evidence of Santa

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez

Monday, we told you about a young girl who asked police to run a DNA test on some cookies and carrots left behind on Christmas Day. Well, the Rhode Island Health Department says the test results are a miracle. A partial DNA match was found linked to a 1947 New York City case centered on 34th Street. It turns out the carrots had reindeer DNA, yet no word on other DNA matches for a chubby, plump, right, jolly old elf. Sounds like a Christmas conspiracy.
