The prosecutor's office will perform forensic tests on evidence from the scene of Thayer Rada's murd

The state attorney's office will begin a re-examination of the forensic evidence found at the scene of Tair Rada's murder in 2006. A few days ago, the attorney's office sent a letter on the matter to the court and to Roman Zdorov's lawyer, in which it was stated that DNA tests will be re-performed for the forensic findings found in the bathroom (the scene of the murder).

In fact, the prosecution is trying to find evidence that would link Zadorov to the murder, in which he was convicted on a circumstantial basis. Among the findings that will be re-examined: bloodstains from the scene, the blood papers found in the bin in the bathroom stall where the murder was committed, hairs found at the scene, Thayer's jeans, the bloodstains found on the toilet.
