William Balfour’s DNA was not on the murder weapon he is accused of using to kill three members of singer Jennifer Hudson’s family, a forensic expert testified today in the eighth day of Balfour’s trial.
Pauline Gordon, an analyst for the Illinois State Police, told jurors she tested the .45-caliber Sig Sauer pistol and found a “very low-level, very limited” amount of DNA belonging to a male, but the sample excluded Balfour as the person who left the genetic material.
Gordon told jurors that in addition to the gun, she also tested numerous samples taken from the SUV, including swabs from door handles, the rear view mirror, gear shift and other areas someone might have touched. She also examined pop bottles, a cigarette butt and used tissue that were found strewn about the vehicle.
None of the samples matched Balfour’s DNA, Gordon said.
