Did she ask them how long it would take?

Original Poster

no she didnt ask
she said she is sick of ringing them now,they just said they have been busy

Usually around 4-6 weeks as the labs are busy.

omg :shock: can't believe that it still hasn't been sorted :x how's your sister?

These are the muppets to blame..........Police can only work with what they have.

Omg what happened ?

I think like someone said it could be at least 4 - 6 weeks, ridiculous when people are made to face the ones who have caused us harm and hurt. Thats the justice system for you.

I hope she gets the results soon, but tell her to keep phoning, even when it is disheartening, so that she keeps them on thier toes!

Good luck with it all and I hope shes better soon

she has just phoned the police now and they said it takes a number of weeks depending on their work load and they only put her clothes in a few days ago!!!!
wont that affect the dna that they have not been looked at for nearly a month?

As a general rule DNA doesnt degrade under normal circumstances, cases from decades ago have been solved with DNA testing.
