I keep wondering if LE may not have bothered to run DNA or fingerprints on whatever evidence they had collected until AGT was implicated in Sierra's disappearance.
As I recall, a lot of California agencies were under severe budget constraints in 2008-2009, due to the economic disaster. Running DNA tests costs money. It may be that if the sketch had brought in a good suspect, they would then have run DNA to see if it matched.
Could be wrong here, but because of all the resources LE has put against this, and because the guy is such a smug jerk....they will do what it takes to pull resources together to convict the scumball.
