  • Were all the following Positive blood droplets found in the kitchen a match to Phillip Fontaine, and who's blood was recovered from the various knifes in the kitchen, I am refering to the knifes where blood was found on the handle, 5inches from the tip, as well as from the handle to the beggining of the knife, I am presuming that the perpertrator had cut himself/ herself in the struggle, as I can't see how all the blood is Mr Fontaine's. Has any other forensic testing been done, with the sole purpose of identifying any other D.N.A.
