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.

its possible that the killer mightve accidentally cut themselves while killing so we should really wait for solid evidence
