No it did not match the other two spots. Neither Lacy, Tom Bennett or no one else but Team Scamsey EVER said that it did.

Worthless LYING posters getting their backsides kicked again by THE TRUTH in this case:

Mitch Morrissey, the district attorney in Denver and a national DNA and forensics expert, agrees the case ran into trouble from the start. Among other things, the crime scene was contaminated and the coroner used the same clipper to clip the fingernails of several corpses, including JonBenet and someone else, rendering the fingernail clippings USELESS AS EVIDENCE.“They didn’t know about DNA,” says Morrissey.

Regardless of any posible contamination, the fact remains that the DNA from the panty area, the nails, and the pants matched.

I would have to repeat so much since you seem to be so puzzled in general.

It wasn't contaminated, it was degraded - there is a difference and matched the other two spots.
There was no match.

Hi Logan. Great to see you posting again!

The foreign male DNA under her fingernails was degraded and the RDI are therefore fond of saying it was OLD DNA, but I don't agree with this. It was probably degraded due to the coroner not following protocol by scraping the fingernails BEFORE he cut them and not using a clean, sterile pair of clippers for each fingernail, which is what he should have done.

Due to this they were able to get only 2-3 viable markers which you were quite correct in saying DID match the male DNA on her clothing. I am convinced that JB probably scratched at her killer and got his skin cells under her nails and had the correct protocol been followed, they'd have obtained a full DNA profile of the killer.

Pay no attention to Candy's last remark. Just about everyone on the forum is accusing everyone else of being someone they're not, but it's a shame you had to encounter the nastiness almost as soon as you stepped in the door. Please don't let it put you off posting. You're an intelligent and knowledgeable poster and your input is very much welcomed.

BrotherMoon is being his usual charming, charismatic self as you can see. Isn't he just wonderful?

The coroner clipping the nails like he did would have caused contamination, not degradation.

Three markers don't make a match Logan. You and I most likely have 3 markers that match also. Good to see you back.

You are still the same disappointment, BM. It is not possible to get a courteous response from you, for you don't have the normal reactions that most have. Try to have a pleasant day, anyway, BM.

You're so obstinate that you wouldn't accept a fact if it were presented to you by the FBI.

Thank you, Seuss. Nice to be back. I'm sure you're right about our having three markers that match but I feel in the RAmsey case, those matches are from the killer.

I am so correct in that you cannot provide evidence for your claims. Have another irritating, frustrating, pointless existing day.

4 people go into a house. Only 3 are alive the next morning, after one is murdered. No one else has been in the house. DO THE MATH! The murderer was buried next to little JonBenet!

If JonBenet came back and said so, you would argue with her that the degraded, forensics did not match!

That's just your opinion. That isn't evidence.

The Ramsey case was never thoroughly or properly investigated.
