First section shows items from the trash from the vehicle. There were 12 items from the trash and 8 items from the trunk. No apparent decomp was found on hairs found. She received items from the ME or the A's. The ME items were handled for hair by Mr. Shaw. She compared the fibers with other fibers found and she did not find any fibers consistent with apparent decomp. Items from the residence - she was asked to do a fabric comparison for the duct tape found on the remains and one at the residence. These were woven fabrics - the residence duct tape did not compare to that found at the scene based on their components. Vacuums were not tested at that point because she questioned as to whether anything she found would be probative due to the vacuums being collected months later. She examined them later. Items from the ME and the scene - she examined hairs (217) and compared them to the hair mass. There was one hair found and it was not consistent with the hair to be known as Caylee's.
