Blood on jacket matched Oland DNA: documents
SAINT JOHN, N.B. - A court document released today says blood on a sports jacket that police seized from the home of Richard Oland's son matched the DNA profile of the slain New Brunswick businessman.
A sworn affidavit by Sgt. Tony Hayes of the Saint John police says a brown Hugo Boss jacket with blood stains that police seized from the home of Dennis Oland was sent to a forensics lab in Halifax for testing.
The affidavit dated Sept. 7, 2012, says the results from the lab show that the blood stains matched Richard Oland's DNA.
The affidavit says the estimated probability of selecting an unrelated Canadian Caucasian randomly with the same profile was one in 180 million.
Court documents released previously say Dennis Oland is the suspect in the case.
No charges have been laid against Dennis Oland and no arrests have been made in the case.
Gary Miller, the lawyer for Dennis Oland, says neither he nor his client will comment.
Richard Oland was found dead in his Saint John office on July 7, 2011.
