justthinkin made a request to have a new thread to discuss the DNA in this case. Hairs found at the discovery ditch were retested using mitochondrial DNA (as no root was present) and revealed a 97.5% match (some sources say a 98.5% match) to Terry Hobbs for the ligature hair (found under the ligature of Michael Moore) and a 93% match to David Jacoby for the tree stump hair (found on a tree stump beside the discovery ditch) and have excluded any of the WM3 as their source. Although the absence of DNA from any of the WM3 does not prove their innocence, shouldn't the presence of DNA from two other people make one or both of these people viable suspects in this crime? This is not new information, but no thread specific to the DNA question is here. So, at the suggestion of another poster, I have opened a thread and therefore a discussion about the DNA issue in this case.
