MYTH #2: Madeleine's blood was NOT found in the Scenic
TRUTH: Madeleine's DNA was NOT EXCLUDED from being in the Scenic
A MATCH to Madeleine's DNA was found in the car....(Rented THREE WEEKS after Madeleine disappeared) The question is, could it be from Madeleine being IN THE CAR or could it be a CHANCE match from at least 2 members of her family leaving 15 DNA markers (that they share with Madeleine), in a BLOOD spot in exactly the same place in the Scenic Luggage compartment?
FSS cannot attribute the DNA to a specific body fluid but we KNOW that Keela the BLOOD dog ONLY alerts to blood. It was therefore BLOOD found in the back of the car.
LEGAL SUMMARY 17- Processo 17 Pages 4592 to 4649
"Is there DNA from Madeline on the swab?"
It would be very simple to say "yes" simply because of the number of components within the result that are also in her reference sample.
What we need to consider, as scientists, is whether the match is genuine and legitimate; because Madeline has deposited DNA as a result of being in the car or whether Madeline merely appears to match the result by chance. The individual components in Madeline's profile are not unique to her, it is the specific combination of 19 components that makes her profile unique above all others. Elements of Madeline's profile are also present within the the profiles of many of the scientists here in Birmingham, myself included. It's important to stress that 50% of Madeline's profile will be shared with each parent. It is not possible, in a mixture of more than two people, to determine or evaluate which specific DNA components pair with each other. Namely, we cannot separate the components out into 3 individual DNA profiles.
Therefore, we cannot answer the question: is the match genuine or is a chance match.'
'it is not possible to attribute this DNA profile to a particular body fluid.'
'What questions will we never be able to answer with LCN DNA profiling?
When was the DNA deposited?
How was the DNA deposited?
What body fluid(s) does the DNA originate from?
Was a crime committed?
