From Sun., Jan. 14, 2018:

*All of the blood recovered from the pants of victim Cheri Bates belonged to her (was female)

*The inside of the gloves recovered from victim Paul Stine's cab contained two different partial profiles, neither belonging to Mr. Stine

No word of a season two for the show.

*Edited for clarity

Well, that's disappointing about Bates.

Wasn't there a handprint or a pair of prints on the bottom of the pants? I guess we will find out about that later.

Didn't they say about the pants in the show that they managed to extract male DNA?

Sure gets old watching this guy slip through the cracks one way or another.  Tom, do you know if they ever tested the Timex Wrist band found at the CJB crime scene?  I would think that band would be loaded with DNA, looked like it was well worn.  I just can't recall if they ever tested it or not.

I'm not a biochemist but isn't there a way to find out whose these partial DNA are? At least a family line...

Disappointing about the CJB pants -- given the HUGE build up they gave it on the show.  (Then again, par for the  course.) 

The gloves -- hmmmm -- we knew they had Stine's DNA, plus the owner's DNA (Z or not).... but a 2nd different (I'm assuming not Stine) partial DNA profile?  Interesting.

Thanks for the update!
Peace,
