Paragraph 54:  Exhibits E19a and E116 contained human body or pubic hair that was grossly similar in all physical characteristics to the known hair of Exhibit E313.

Paragraph 55:  It is the opinion of the examiner that the hair of Exhibits E19a and E116 could have had a common source of origin with the known hair of Exhibit E313.

Paragraph 56:  Examination of Exhibits E50, E52NB, E57NB, E123, E221, E222, E227 and E229 did not reveal the presence of any hair grossly similar to the known hairs of Exhibits E305 through E313.

Paragraph 57:  Comparative examinations of the hairs from Exhibits E4 and E5 revealed the same to be dissimilar to the hairs from Exhibits E305 through E313.

     a.  Therefore it is the opinion of the examiners that the hairs of Exhibits E4 and E5 probably did not originate from the same point sources as the hairs of E305 through E313.

     b.  However, it must be pointed out that the requested opinion regarding positively eliminating the subject as a possible source of the hair cannot be given without first examining numerous other point sources of body hair from the subject.
