(Emphasis added)

. . . The thirty remaining, eighteen latent palm prints, and six latent impressions appearing exhibits, 1x2, 2x5, 2x34, 3x1, 3x4, 3x6, 3x10, 3x12, 3x20, 3x22, 3x25, 3x29, 4x17, 4x23, 5x4, 5x6, 5x7, 5x11, 5x12, 5x14, 5x18, 6x5 and 6, 6x7, 6x9, 7x1, 7x2, J, L-24, P, S-1, S-2, M, Q, and Z were compared with the available inked prints of Jeffrey Robert MacDonald, Colette S. MacDonald, and with the available inked prints of 125 individuals, whose names appear on the attached list, but no identification were effected. Conclusive comparisons could not be made in some instances because the inked prints are not fully recorded, including tips, sides, lower joint areas of fingers and palm prints, and some of the copies of prints are not completely legible.

Webmaster note


Some notes for this exhibit include references to rings Jeffrey MacDonald claimed were missing from his residence at 544 Castle Drive.

Several times, MacDonald made requests of investigators that they return a sapphire ring to him. It can therefore be concluded that he did not believe this ring (if it ever existed) had been stolen by intruders. A heart-shaped ring he had also claimed was missing was returned to him on March 9, 1970. He later tried to claim there was a second, missing heart-shaped ring.

Per the witness statement of William Ivory (CID) on February 2, 1971 (see notes below for full transcript):

     "On 4 Dec 70, MACDONALD was confronted with the fact that the so called 'heart shaped' ring had been released to him on 9 Mar 70. He stated that the ring he was referring to was just like the one released to him on 9 Mar 70, and at this time he said it, the 'heart shaped' diamond ring was missing.
     "I personally examined all items of jewelry in the MACDONALD residence on a number of occasions and there was only one 'heart shaped' ring and this was released to MACDONALD on 9 Mar 70. I neer saw a sapphire ring in the residence at anytime, and know no one who has seen the two items claimed by MACDONALD to be missing.
     "On 17 Feb 70, the fabric covered jewelry box found on the dresser in 544 Castle Dr. was examined by US Army CI Lab chemist CRAIG CHAMBERLAIN. A stain found on the inside surface of the box lid was tested at the crime scene on that date by CHAMBERLAIN and found not to contain human blood. This test, and others made throughout the house which were negative and not of apparent evidential value were not included in the report rendered by the laboratory. This was done apparently with the idea that it would eliminate confusion in reading the complex report."
