If there is a CODIS hit, does it mean that the suspect has been identified?
If there is a CODIS hit, the suspect may be identified. If there is a CODIS hit to an offender, a suspect may be identified. If there is a CODIS hit to another forensic case, then the suspect may have not been identified. If both of the involved cases have no individuals identified as a possible suspect, then the CODIS hit only confirms that the two crimes were likely committed by the same person, but that person’s identity is unknown.
