Apart from the supposed victim of the second attack retracting her assault allegations - had it happened there are many cases of copy cat killers in law journals. Just as easy also that someone who worked around there chewed a lot of gum and littered the empty packs.

Surely the old DNA could be re-examined as the tests are probably more detailed than they were during the original examination of the crime.

It is at times like this that you wished we didn't have such a poor record for incarcerating the wrong people in murder cases.
