We tracked down the lab that handled the new kind of DNA evidence that exonerated John and Patsy Ramsey in the murder of their daughter 12 years ago, six-year-old beauty queen JonBenet.
We wanted to find out how this lab effectively ruled out the heart-breaking and unresolved accusations that these parents murdered their daughter.
The lab's run by Bode Technology, based in one of those unassuming office parks - this one in Lorton, Virginia.
When we got there, the photojournalists and I were required to have our own DNA swabbed… two mouth samples each. They say it’s policy, to make sure there’s no strange outside DNA they can’t identify in there.
