I found this article both a little comforting and frightening at the same time. Comforting because forensic evidence got the right people behind bars; frightening because the Home Office's Forensic Science Service missed such obvious evidence.
|Detective Superintendent Nick Ephgrave, who took over the running of the investigation at the end of the first trial, asked a different laboratory, run by private firm Forensic Alliance, to re-examine all the items in the case.|
The lab found that a bloodstain on a shoe, easily visible to the human eye, had been missed along with blood drops and fibres on the suspects' other clothes.
The police investigation alone into the killing has cost almost $7.6 million.
Who trains these people anyway?
