Dfrost...the officer informed me that they wanted the DNA to link the articles with the subject and that they are also part of the clothing that Pizza man said was worn(especially the hoodie). Either way the city prosecutor will probably make the call.
Yes Chris is a Sid son, and I have another one here at my feet that is 4 1/2 months, and he shows everything Chris did at same age and even a little more, if that is possible.
I would bet that the officer was very mistaken. They already have positive ID from the victim and DNA takes forever and would only prove that an individual was wearing something. Positive photo ID is all that they need. If the officer you spoke to is a street cop that explains it We do not get DNA confirmation under these circumstances. Would be pretty bizarre
Thanks Chris, I love to see our breed extended to their greatest capabilities. Lays the foundation for some breeders to strive for the utility dog the breed was always supposed to be.
Just FYI, we police k9 handlers have been using trailing dogs for 30 years. Also article search. That is part of being a patrol dog
I trailed six bangers over 20yrs ago and my dog found every tennis shoe and cap they dropped along the way. That is what they should do They are going to find the human odor
Actually, we had patrol dogs, trailing dogs, sentry dogs and all kinds of scent and infantry dogs,(Trackers for trailing the enemy, mine and tunnel, scout, etc) in 1974 when I was in the Army. Don't know how many years ago that was.
