What types of samples can be submitted for burglary cases, where no bodily fluids were found?
Bodily fluids, such as blood on a broken window, are the optimal sample types for DNA testing. However, we understand that these types of samples are not always present at a crime scene. Anything that may have been touched during a burglary (for example – anything that would be fingerprinted) could possibly be used for DNA testing. In addition, clothing or masks that are suspected to be from the perpetrator can also be used for DNA testing.
