    He definitely said it proves nothing more than he knew her.

    DNA does NOT prove 2 people knew each other. It proves two people came into contact with each other.

    If you are killed by a stranger and they leave their DNA on you, does that mean they “knew you”?? Certainly not.

    It’s a ridiculous statement.

    You clearly don’t understand the statement then. They obviously had some kind of a relationship. It will all come out soon enough.

    I understand very clearly....I have 2 degrees.

    The simple fact of DNA being on someone else does not prove a relationship. Again it only proves someone came in contact with an object or person.

    Another example ....we don’t know each other.... if I physically bump into you at a store and a strand of my hair falls onto your clothes, do I know you?? Again, No. My hair, which contains DNA, simply fell on your clothes.

    Of course it is. The defense can't say that. Their job is to provide plausible reasons that don't involve rape or murder for DNA being found on a dead girl. That press conference with his lawyers and wife made me think he was guilty.

    The only thing it really proves is that his DNA was on JB and/or her clothes on the night she was murdered. It doesn't prove they knew each. It doesn't even really prove they came into contact with each other, and it certainly, by itself anyway, doesn't prove he murdered her.

    He will need to explain how his DNA ended up on her and a jury will have to decide what it all means.

    DNA doesn't lie because DNA doesn't talk. You need corroborating evidence.

    It could be that CM knew J.B.’s legal guardian/dance instructor. That would be a very plausible way of them knowing each other.

    Unfortunately that wouldn't do anything to explain the DNA.

    I wonder if he committed other crimes. He's been a trucker able to travel and be away from his family he could have gone undetected forever.

    According to his lawyer which I take with a huge grain of salt. It's far from obvious that this is a fact. How convenient that we just now find out they were secret lovers which just happens to provide him with an excuse for his DNA being all over the victim.

    IMO it's defense lawyer poppycock and I hate that the victims' families are subjected to pure innuendo

    Is it just me or does anyone else just dislike that lawyer? It's not because of this case there is something about him that comes off as untrustworthy. I don't know if he seems to aggressive trying to drill it in that his client is innocent.

    I Do NOT feel sorry for CM and I think his religious conversion is a sham.

    He could at ANY time walked his happy butt to the police station and confessed to what he did.

    He did not.

    He set up that ministry in 2013.

    IMO, he is hiding behind the very same God he claims to serve.

    If he truly had an religious experince, he would have turned himself in a long time ago.

    Ticks me off when ppl do this.

    Did you notice the wife wasn't quite clear on if he was a preacher currently. She seemed annoyed when asked about his ministry, but she had no problem saying he was praying. Or mentioning how godly and religious he is - gag! The wife insisting he's praying for everyone was just like stfu.
