Lee was briefed by the same people who had already decided the case was an RDI. He had no reason at that time not to trust a police department, that is is "gig". Sadly, he did not have access to the crime scene when time was important. It doesn't seem he was aware of the dna that was finally tested and proven to be "codis" worthy. Lee should have kept his "mouth shut" , clearly he is not a "player" in the eventual solving of this case.
