rid of evidence than it is. >> reporter: glen kershner spent decades as a prosecutor and studie tasd cors f mose signifi is that crime scene investigators did recover dnahi evidence w prosecutors say matches the defendant daron wint. but from e beginning police believe there were other suspects and never charged anyone else. they never reported recovering yone else's dna. but according to this court record obtained byhei-team, when a forensic biologist from the atf arrived at the home, there were water bottles and gloves all over the ene. she was told they were discarded by the first responders and fi fiters. as a result she did not collect the items. the same true for water bottles found in a masterm. bedr when the forensic biologist asked, she was told firefighters took theserirom the rrator in the master bedroom. as a result, she did not recover these items. >> it may that be no actual evidence was st, but it may be
that the defense will be able to persuade theury that it is yet another iication of less than ideal police work and that may give one or more jurors some doubt in the case. >> reporter: the forensic biologist said she only swabbed the toilet in the bathroom where the bodies were located. it appeared thethers were filled with urine but it was her understanding they had been use by the firefighters. susan is a retired d.c. police detective who worked hundreds of homicides. >> whether he you've got to go, you m not be in an area where there's port-a-potty or anything elo. you've got relieve yourself. so you know, you don't flush t toilet because you don't know what else is there. >>iohe firefighters' a are not unheard of. while the failure to testpo ntial evidence isn't ideal, she doesn't think it will hurt the case. clint van zat says the biggest impact might be what could have
learned about other suspects but wasn't into there's reasoble doubt that maybe from an evidence gathering stapoint we could have put somebody else at the crime scene. >> reporter: he says perhaps the most critical piece of evidence lost was somhing that could explain how the suspects got into the home. prosecutors noted that in the basement, there was a screw driver holding a window open and that atf expert rawles askingat he screw driver be collected. she does not believe it was recored, wever. >> that was jody fleischer reporting. we did reach out to the atf. they had no comment because of pending litigation. >> we did speak to one long time criminal defense attorney who called theevelations a bombshell because it could weaken the prosecution'scase. >> that's how guilty people go free. it's unfortunate. i'm not saying wint is guilty or not guilty. h ifs going to be found not guilty or acquitted, this is the
