She and her two kids were abducted; driven deep into the everglades and abused for hours on a October day in 2002. Weil's children three and 8-months at the time, were forced to watch.
"He raped me four times that day," Weil said. "Four times to think you were gonna die, or to be so horrified by what's going into your children's minds that you want to die. It was completely devastating."
But Siebert was about to pay for his crimes because forensics turned up a tiny piece of his DNA on Weil's shirt.
"I can only speak as a victim and say that capturing my rapist gave me my life back," Weil said. DNA was the key to me being able to go outside of my house. Now I have an identity on this person. It saved my life."
Most of us probably assume that when a crime occurs, like a rape, evidence is gathered and then automatically tested for DNA -- but that's not always the case.
DNA testing is costly and time consuming. Plus, if investigators or prosecutors don't think it's a strong case, DNA testing may never occur.
The Contact 5 Investigators have learned this can be especially true with rape cases. According to the federal government, as many as 400-thousand rape kits have never been processed.
Victim advocates call it the 'rape kit backlog.' Just this year in Houston, Texas, where more than 6-thousand backlogged rape kits were discovered, the mayor ordered them all tested.
With 300 of the kits tested so far, 16 rapists have been found in CODIS, the national DNA database that tracks criminals.
"I think any hit is significant to a case," Catherine Cothran with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said. "We could have one case go into CODIS and if it hits, it can be significantespecially to a victim."
Cothran has been cracking forensic cases for PBSO for 10 years. "It's emotional but it's very rewarding," she said. "It's an unbelievable feeling knowing that you were able to help that detective's investigation and the victim of course."
Armed with test tubes and brushes, Cothran combs evidence, searching for 16 genetic markers that make up a suspect's unique DNA.
"It would be nice if every profile was just all sixteen genetic markers," Cothran said. "I can't make a very conclusive result if I only obtained one marker."
This typically means only solid cases, with victim cooperation get pushed for DNA testing.
Cothran said they could run them all but, the results may never go anywhere.
"I may write a report, but it may never be prosecuted," she said. "So where do you kind of stop the process? It has to aid in the investigation."
At the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, the Contact 5 Investigators found there are 60 rape kits that are not in line for testing.
St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office found 92, Martin County Sheriff's Office counted 51 and Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office has five sitting on shelves in storage.
