The bags holding them had been tampered with. Bags with clothes that were never tested for DNA, even though they should have. Bags with clothes that could, according to an expert, no longer provide any clear DNA test results. Rudolf argues that this clothing could have essential DNA to support the "intruder theory. Oh, wow, so that works? No, definitely not. But two people's names are dragged through the mud: Duane Deaver and Suzy Barker. Apparently they were supposed to have tested the items back in but never did.
Even though Michael's team wants the case dropped, the judge is like "Nah" because the prosecution had found other sufficient evidence, in his eyes, to sustain the murder charge.
