…However, Jeff Marano, the President of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association, spoke to CBS4 News regarding the investigation. He claims that Detective Wadsworth handled the case appropriately and said that DNA does not always tell the full story.
â€œJust because his DNA was not on the weapon does not mean that he did not kill that person,â€ Marano said. â€œDNA is not an absolute.â€
Marano also said that once investigators learned about the DNA discrepancy prosecutors were informed. He added that Dobardâ€™s arrest was based on eyewitness testimony, not DNA.
â€œThe eyewitness was very solid at the time,â€ Marano said. â€œIt went through the process of a warrant signed by a judge, presented to the grand jury. So this not a willy-nilly, one arrest and youâ€™re incarcerated. This went through a long process.â€
