What if the bones in the garden are NOT Lisa de Carr`s remains? - The case of Wayne Tompkins

First, this Court overlooked Mr. Tompkins justification for DNA testing. He argued that the DNA testing of the bone identified as the remains of the victim could determine definitely whether the remains were those of Lisa DeCarr. See Reply/Cross-Answer at 32 ("if the DNA testing of the bone, hair or other organic material established that the decedent was not Lisa DeCarr, Mr. Tompkins would be exonerated").

Given that Mr. Tompkins was convicted of killing Lisa Decarr, this Court failed to explain how DNA evidence that the remains were not those of Lisa DeCarr would not have resulted in an acquittal.
