Who, me?Yup - it would make sense that Dr. Vass's words are what are burned into my brain.
So what exactly are you saying - 3 - 5 or 2.5 to 3? Because to me it looks like you are flying both ways.
Oh no, not flying at all! LOL Just went and looked up the info in question. Trying to be Ms. Helpy Helperton.
Bug evidence did not say 2.5 to 3 days.
Bug evidence said up to 5 days.
It was air evidence that said 2.6 days.
Per Harmony's post, Vass arrived at the 2.6 days PMI in part via testing scrapings from the trunk carpet. In his report, he notes that gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was used to analyze the scrapings. This type of testing detects/measures chemicals in vaporized compounds from samples. So, the "air" in which the telltale butyric acid was detected didn't come from a Tedlar bag; it was vaporized via GC-MS from the substance scraped from the trunk carpet.
