DNA tech’s reference semen DNA or sloughed skin shows up in 2014 super sensitive profile of 1984 murder case

Police used a lie detector on an over cooperating retired crime lab tech to concoct a “confession” that is nothing of the sort. This story is dominated by overarching confidence from San Diego law enforcement that “DNA always gets our perps” which ignores common sense and known facts of how sloppy labs were in the 1980’s. They trashed the retiree who recently committed suicide. His wife has filed suit to uncover the “now closed” police investigation. From The Atlantic.
