Zodiac Revisited contributor Morf13 has provided the following documents which he obtained earlier this year. The documents pertain to mitochondrial DNA and hair analysis done on evidence from the Cheri Jo Bates murder. In particular, it was done at the request of the Riverside Police Department in an attempt to incriminate their prime suspect. Unfortunately, for them, it ended up clearing him. The analysis itself was performed between 1999 and 2000. The documents are interesting for numerous reasons, not the least of which are the significant details they provide regarding the physical evidence that was used to generate the mitochondrial DNA profile.

Have a look, and thanks to Morf13 for sharing.
