A sample of the fragments is placed in a special oil and then warmed up and cooled down until the point when the fragment refracts light at the same point as the oil.
Separate laboratories were used for items owned by Diane and her husband to prevent cross-contamination.
As scientific techniques have developed, so has the ability of the FSS and the police to consider ‘cold case reviews’ using something called Low Copy Number (LCN) testing, which can take minuscule traces of DNA from clothing or other items and amplify them to get a DNA profile.
