It was that smudge of blood on the note -- Randy Scott's blood -- which enabled the medical examiner to use DNA technology to trace the note.By the time the note had gone through all those processes, a decade had passed.In August 2011, the medical examiner's office called Denise Scott, said it had something written, and asked her to identify it.
