Webmaster note

Exhibit D221 is the terrycloth robe itself, while Exhibit E221 is hairs, fibers and debris from the robe. The CID Findings for Exhibit D221 refer to hairs and fibers, which are not shown in the findings for Exhibit E221. It is not known why the pajama fibers and hair were shown in the findings for D221 instead of E221.
