The DNA proof is degraded to a piece of circumstantial evidence

Seems like you can’t even trust DNA evidence any more: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/18/science/18dna.html

There are some interesting quotes in the article- coming from a man who seems to know the matter:

You can just engineer a crime scene

Any biology undergraduate could perform this.

DNA is a lot easier to plant at a crime scene than fingerprints.

The article draws some bizarre scenarios – like “genetic paparazzi” and stuff alike.

These are interesting times indeed,
