Mitochondrial DNA is DNA that's separate to the DNA found on the chromosomes and FTY1 is correct that you inherit it only from your mother. However, rather than this DNA giving a (example) 1 in 10 billion chance of it being anyone other than a particular person the mtDNA will still narrow the field to anyone, male or female, from that female lineage, so it's still useful, to a degree.Metic posted this earlier about 3.46 is the filming of the dig in 2000. This was before both the Inquests that determined there was not enough information to prosecute. There was minute amount of DNA from my understanding it was mitochondrial DNA (the type you inherit from your mother), not the type you can use on an ancestry site. The DNA was not Lyn Dawsons. Hedley Thomas had an expert look over the cardigan, I can't remember whether it was just from pictures which I think is most likely and the expert suggested they could be stab marks. If it was used it would be only as an additional piece of evidence not the clincher.
I mentioned the cardigan because it was suspicious not because it would be used for evidence.
It's well worth a watch and quite interesting to see given its pre all the pod cast hype.
