31. If there's a DNA test and it's repliclated and confirmed-- He did it.

No if's ands or buts. DNA is very definitive. It's more solid than anything before, which is why so many people are being found innocent. It's accuracy is somewhere around 99.99 . . . (infinity) percent accurate. Especially when you have 7 matches.

And the fact is, cops want to get a rapist off the streets, too. They aren't going to stack up charges against a dead multiple-cop killer-- to make him look bad. That guy's rap sheet is already shitty enough, nothing is gained by slandering him now, and it's not like they're working overtime so they could convict him . . .

And plus, even without those reasons, they can't afford the scandal if it's found that the rapist is still on the loose. Now, there will never be a trial to prove this, simply because there's no issue of loss of life or liberty for the dead defendant. The family could sue to "clear his name," but that seems moot.

If you want police to waste their time and resources on a crime that's 100 percent solved just to satisfy the ill-informed, then police probably won't have time and resources for unsolved crimes.
