A correct pillowcase is probably a good control sample, especially for the dribblers amongst us, as well as the odd hair & skin cells, but would need to be lifted carefully and bagged immediately to preserve all of this evidence, which is why I can’t envisage GM being allowed to go in and collect it himself, but hey-ho.
Similarly it makes absolutely no sense that the PJ were unable to find a suitable control sample in the apartment.
