Pubic hair consistent with the victim were found inside the vehicle, however, autopsy results reveal all her public hair had been removed within 6 hours of death. Is it likely the hair removal was perimortem and what sample did they have to make the comparison?

Since Hunter says she did not have unusual shaving habits (if we can believe him)....did someone else shave her?

Regardless of who would shave her, why would someone do it? What are the motives behind it? First guess would be that it was an attempt to eliminate DNA traces.

Moreover, there are quite a few number of pubic hairs in that vehicle from both persons, and those are just the ones that were collected. Which leads me to think that they're either sitting naked in the vehicle, or they've been sitting only in their underwear/some kind of swimsuit. I understand that, as biological creatures, you tend to leave some traces of yourself here and there... But if you're wearing any clothes on your lower half at any time, that should be protection enough. Either that vehicle hasn't been cleaned in MONTHS, or something recently agitated those areas enough to leave behind a significant amount of hair. Were they fooling around in the passenger seat? There was a used condom, but we'd need to see the results of the external DNA before anything else.

That condom doesn't belong to Hunter, does it? It's latex. If it was used and they're able to trace DNA on the outside of it belonging to the victim, then that's a recent... Thing, that's happened.

Might be time to give the male profiles another glossing over.
