"Missing. So ROY said she felt obligated to bring up concerns about the results. There were low levels of DNA found on the duct tape, and she was less confident with the results than she was in her first report. So she issued a new one in June twenty thirteen in it. She said the DNA results were inconclusive. Kevin did have similar DNA to the DNA found on the role of duct tape, but she needed more advanced tools to analyze it. This isn't something I need to be ashamed about because this came about from advancements in technology. This is something that affected the entire field that we now understood that this data was so unreliable that we shouldn't be making interpretations because we can't be certain about what it's telling us. And so I felt like I could not go into court and say with with any level of certainty, you know that this person was included or anyone was included in that data given given the quality of that profile because now I know that. That wasn't applied properly. We don't know what the chances of a random person being included, and we don't know how common rare that would be inserted go into court and say that it was one in a million or one in twelve billion with the combined statistic is misleading in people. You know a now I knew that that was misleading in so I couldn't go in and present that into conscience as the years went on the questions about the DNA evidence against Kevin were never fully resolved. Meanwhile, Kevin's defense, attorneys pointed out other potential weaknesses in the case against him, like Kevin's fingerprints weren't found at the scene and they obtain handwritten notes from detective, Toyota, that reference conversations he'd had with Camille conversations that were not recorded. Those notes described times where Camille was shown photos early in the investigation before Kevin was a suspect she singled out to men. She said, resembled her attacker, but the detective didn't put that in his reports. Toyota later testified that he didn't consider those to be identification 's. But despite the defense's efforts to chip away at the case and the change DNA results, detective, Toyota state firm on Kevin's guilt. He believed the DNA found on the duct tape matched Kevin's. By twenty seventeen. The charges against Kevin proud were nearly five and a half years old, and the judge was expressing concerns. Bringing the case to jury was a problem for both sides. The prosecution had issues with its two main pieces of evidence DNA and the eyewitness testimony from Camille. But even though Kevin insisted he didn't kill anybody. He didn't have a great alibi for the night of the murders. It was a horrific crime, and he was facing the death penalty. The judge urged both sides to come up with a resolution. So that's what they did. On February twenty first twenty seventeen. They went into court with the deal. The state agreed to the minimum sentence for the crimes, ten years because gun was involved. And they agreed to credit him for the more than five years. He had spent in jails, his arrest. His sentence will be followed by fifteen years of probation. The punishment is a disappointment for Camille Hamilton and the families of the victims who believe Kevin proud was the killer and for detectives who spent years trying to solve the case. But the risk that he might go free and unpunished was too great. And for Kevin, the deal would mean he'd have to spend nearly five more years in prison when the judge asked him how he pleaded to the murder charges. Kevin pause for a moment before saying. Guilty. Camille step to the podium yelled at him for an apology and told the Judge Kevin deserve to be put to death. As she's escorted away, Camille said to Kevin, God is going to punish you. You may not be punished by the law, but you're going to be punished Kevin, Pratt. It's been a year and a half since the emotional Dan court. Sitting in her living room in Florida. Camille. Hamilton says it's hard for her to smile these days. Even when it happens, her thoughts return to our daughter, Nikita Hamilton. She still keeps a room for Nikki set up like she had it in her room in Jamaica. Sometimes she comes into the room and lies down and she talks to her daughter. In fact, she talks to her a lot when she's driving walking cooking, it helps her feel like Nikki still there with her. She writes to her in a journal to telling what's happened in the days that have passed since her death.

"Camille is escorted from the room. Really. Hurt retail. No real. All. You have an opportunity. This is rare gift to make better would happen to rare gift giving you this gift take. Kevin doesn't take the offer, and the interview was over. He didn't have a confession from Kevin, but they did have Camille identification of him from the lineup, two weeks later, they would have something even bigger. Results from the new round of DNA testing by the outside lab came in on September twenty second twenty. Eleven. It was more than a year after the county crime labs, initial reports this Kevin's name, but wasn't conclusive. This time, the results were stronger. The report said the chance that the DNA belong to an unrelated person was one in twelve billion. The results were a dramatic improvement. Kevin Pratt, could finally be charged with murder. Camille, Hamilton, detective, Steve Toyota, stood in front of news, cameras. The case, it finally been salt. Kevin Pratt, was the ruthless killer. Toyota said there would finally be Justice for faith, David and Akita. The detective explain the DNA evidence at the press conference match so much that the chance of anybody being chosen at random one in twelve billion which is better than the world's population. Camille spoke about her confrontation with Kevin. When I saw him. I'd never forget what he looks like. Never. I remembering very well the case against Kevin, look strong. I'm happy that Justice is going to be done. The next week, the detectives from Miramar head to the prison in north Florida were Kevin's been behind bars. He's wearing a blue prison uniform as -tective Toyota read, Tim, the arrest warrant that formerly charges Kevin with the Encino murders. They give him one last chance to come clean. Side. Utah. One of the items that was us. The commission that's no mistake DNA. One hundred percent one twelve. Identifies you as a person. It's not a mistake, the victim coming in and identifying. Say you moving in that area right before, but lease. Say, you see how they are filing. You see skins. Stacked against you. Kevin continues to say, he's innocent then runs out of patience. Three council on. All star, the corporate CDs. You don't want disputed. Do that core. Kevin is through talking. He stands up and even though his hands are cuffed behind him, he opens up the interview room door and steps into the hallway. You're a coward Bertran says, and the door closes, so they don't have a confession. At least they're still the DNA. But the detectives were in for another disappointment. The state of Florida versus Kevin Pratt, began its years long March through the court system. The strongest piece of evidence against him was the new DNA test. But the understanding of DNA testing was changing and my twenty thirteen nearly two years had passed since the more conclusive test results. That's when the prosecutor Alberto rebus call the DNA analyst at the private lab to go over the results. Again. She took a look and what Tiffany ROY saw was troubling. The evidence had a mixture of DNA from multiple people, and new guidelines had been issued that called for a more conservative approach for this kind of DNA profile. Roy's first has had looked only at the DNA that was present. The new guidelines set analysts should also consider what parts of the DNA might be missing.

"Confess. It happened on September eighth twenty eleven more than two years after the murders. Kevin was taken from prison in north Florida to a nearby county jail that had a live lineup room. A deputy from the jail ran. The lineup commute was read a script and like the photo lineup in Jamaica, it would be recorded on video. But reporter. Stephen Hobbs says, there were concerned with this lineup too. One. The things that's important in wine, ABS light. This is who's running it and do they know the suspect they're not. So the sheriff's deputy who was running this lineup was working at this. This jail is kind of a small county jail. And so he was aware of the other people who were with Kevin standing there during the wine, there was only about one hundred and eighty people at this county jail to choose from. So there's not a lot of people that shoes from that. Maybe we'll look really similar to Kevin just by comparison browertown either were about forty, four hundred people in jail at that time, which would have been a much larger population of people to choose from that would really similar to Kevin and how that plays out in this lineup is we see that there's a really big age difference in the people that are chosen to stand with Kevin. The six men are lined up facing the wall with their backs to Camille one by one they are told to turn to face her. Then turn left then right than back to the wall. Kevin, prod, number four. On the video, Camille is not visible as Kevin turns to face her. But the deputy running the lineup would later say that her knees buckled when she saw him the last two men face her. Then communities asked if she recognized any of them, she asks to see numbers four and five again. So they repeat the whole lineup, then they do it again. And this time they're asked to smile. Camille wants to see their teeth. She said, the man who attacked her had gold teeth on his bottom row. Kevin shows gold teeth, but he has them on the top and bottom. Six individuals orphan. Solve Mizra car, Camille pauses for a moment. Then stands up and softly says, number four, Kevin Pratt, the lineup lasted nearly twenty five minutes and was over. But the real drama of the day wasn't. The detectives had planned it for months. The first two interviews with Kevin didn't lead to a confession. So they tried an unusual tactic. The detectives had Kevin in an interview room after the lineup, and we're asking him the same questions they had asked over and over before more than forty, five minutes into the interview. The door opens and Camille Hamilton walks in. Own intrusive. This is Camille. She lived just. In their son. Remember who worse. Back was turned to the road. When you when you have. Money. Never. Don't get you. Detective. Bertrand urges Kevin to say something apologize. Camille pleads with him. For fifteen minutes. She goes on, but Kevin never says a word, Camille sorrow turns to anger. No. Camille

"Free. After their first interview with Kevin detectives were keeping their eyes on him nearly two months later after a court hearing in Miami Dade County, they followed him after he left the courthouse trying to find people. He knew it was a bizarre stakeout. So at this point, an investigation detectives or trying to talk with people, maybe new Kevin friends or people, he was staying with it, try to little bit with family, but weren't able to really much information. So they've one day decided to follow him outside of court, hearing his hearing actually got cancelled that day. And when he left the courthouse, detective, Toyota detective, Bertrand, we send other officer, they followed Tevin in their cars, different cars on March cars, just trying to see where he went to go talk to anyone. Was there any people that they could follow up with and try to find more information about Kevin? Did he ever say anything about the murders to other people that he wasn't telling the detect. Actives. Is really interesting is as they're following them in these unmarked cars, detective, Toyota waiter said that the reports were maybe he stopped and started stretching, and he would run or even walk. Aimlessly didn't seem like he really had a place that he was going destination that he was going in. This went on for hours and he didn't really go to any homes or talk with any people. So they weren't able to get much information about it. And the other thing was just he also appeared to have kind of radicals on. It went on for about seven hours. And Kevin walked and ran the streets of Miami without talking with anybody. Detectors had learned nothing. Well, almost nothing. Detector Toyota later wrote that Kevin appeared to be homeless. The detectives will try again months later to interview Kevin. It was March of twenty eleven and Kevin agree to meet with them. And again, didn't ask for an attorney, Kevin didn't budge. And without a confession, they'd have to keep looking at evidence from St.. More DNA tests were done, including on the duct tape from the crime scene. The process would take time without something detective suddenly had. Kevin was back in prison and was going to be there for a while. Hi, this is Sean pits from the flowness Florida team.

He was in a rental car and the officer said Kevin had a knife in the center console when he tried to take Kevin out of the car, they got an a scuffle Kevin was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. That was February twenty ten, six months after the Sinoe street murders. It took almost a year for Kevin to be sentenced for the incident with Kevin behind bars. New DNA tests were performed on pieces of duct tape that had been taken from the murder scene. An earlier test that had led detectives to Kevin proud was far from conclusive. It had found a mixture of DNA from at least three people on a roll of duct tape that was next to the bodies. Kevin couldn't be ruled out as one of them. With more advanced DNA testing an option. Miramar hired an outside crime lab in June twenty eleven. The new lab was sent a swab from the role of duct tape. The lab repeated the first test that had been done by the county crime lab, but it also did a second test. This one focused on y chromosomes those only belonging to men. The results took months. Meanwhile, detectives use the time to grant Camille Hamilton, her request to face the suspect in person. They would arrange a live lineup in front of her and they planned for a stunning twist aimed at getting him to confess.

"This would be Kevin Pratt's best alibi for the night. Four people were shot three fatally on Encino street in Miramar, Florida in August two thousand nine. But it was seven months earlier and more than three hundred miles away. On a Thursday afternoon in late January two thousand nine, Kevin's bloodied body, lay inside a bath and kitchen store. Jacksonville, Florida won a sheriff's deputy came upon him. His shirt off exposing wound caused by a bullet that had ripped through his abdomen. Moments earlier, he was going into a nearby apartment complex to meet a girl. But when he walked in an apartment guy pulled a gun on him apparently to rob him, there was a struggle and Kevin was shot. He made it a few hundred feet south of the apartments and into the store where witnesses said he wasn't telling the much about what happened and the gunman was never found. Kevin's gunshot wound was serious and he needed emergency surgery. He survived, but he would later tell detective that the injury led to months of recovery and continue to affect him more than a year later. So when detectives told Kevin, he was their prime suspect in the triple murder that happened seven months after the shooting. Kevin said it couldn't be him. He was still recovering from the gunshot and his body was too weak to pull off such an attack. He explained. How could he possibly have killed faith business or Davey and Bishop and the, he'd Hamilton. These. I got shot and strength. I don't know kill somebody killed three people that. Do that.

Hamilton was back in Jamaica when Miramar detectives, Steve, Toyota and his partner. Hector, Bertrand flew from Florida to see her on the island nearly a year had passed since a mysterious gunman shot her in the face and killed her teenage daughter to others. The detectives hadn't had a suspect until now and they were wasting no time building a case. They brought six photos with them. One was a photo of Kevin from his driver's license taken seven months before the murderers. The other photos were fillers, five different black men all with various types of facial hair. This photo lineup was important and had to be done right. Camille would be shown the photos by Jamaican contractor for the US Marshall service. He didn't know which of the photos showed the suspect so that Camille identification wasn't tainted by any of his reactions and the procedure would be videotaped. So there was a record.

"Store. Undo as a household product that can help remove at he Cives like labels or tape. The idea to use it came from the county crime labs, DNA unit manager, a bit of a hail, Mary stalled investigation. An investigator put undo on cotton swab. He then brushed the swab on the role of duct tape thought to have been used by the killer. If there were cells containing DNA sticking to the tape, the undo might help free them. He swabbed different parts of the role. Now the samples were in the hands of the lab detectives would have to wait to find out if the technique would pay off. DNA testing is a complicated process that takes time. The technology is constantly changing and testing has become more sensitive over the years. It's moved beyond blood and other bodily fluids. Analysts can now use miniscule amounts of DNA like from skin cells to crack cases. The sample from the role of duct tape is put in a small tube. Chemicals are added in the tube is heated. The goal is to break up cells in the sample and released their DNA. Once that's done, the analysts will know if there's any testable DNA. The DNA is copied over and over so that even those tiny amounts evaluated the DNA from the tape is then reviewed and a profile uploaded to a state law enforcement database that includes people, convicted of and arrested for crimes. On July twelve, twenty ten nearly a year after the murders. Detective, Toyota gets the call from the crime lab. And finally catches a break. The DNA on the duct tape return to name. He's a man who has been in prison before black American thin in his early thirties. Similar to what Camille Hamilton described. His name is Kevin Pratt. Nineteen ninety-five Kevin was sentenced to three years in prison for a robbery. Nineteen ninety eight. He got a year in prison for striking officer with the vehicle and fleeing police. He also got charged for carrying a concealed gun during that incident. More recently in two thousand eight. He got arrested for a couple indecent exposure incidents, including one in Jacksonville. In that case, he pleaded no contest. He also had multiple run ins with police across Florida and a few months before the DNA hit had been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. Nearly three months after the street murders an officer in the Orlando area stopped Kevin because he fit the description of a man involved in an attempted robbery. An officer collected a DNA sample, even though he wasn't accused in the robbery. It was at least his second sample attitude state's database. And there's more. Two other encounters police had with Kevin Pratt, put him close to the time in place of the murders. The first one happened a little more than a week before and just a couple miles away. An officer saw Kevin panhandling at nearby intersection. He didn't know anything in the report about Kevin's appearance. But later the officer said, he remembered he had a beard. The other report from a police officer in Miami Dade County revealed a Kevin had been stopped just over the county line around four miles from the murder scene. The officer noted in his report that Kevin had short and curly black hair and beard slash goatee that was around eleven fifty PM on August fifteenth. Almost exactly twenty four hours later, Camille Hamilton arrived on NCO street in the mercury sable carrying snacks were her daughter. Detectives had caught a huge break in the murder case. If Kevin Pratt's DNA was on the duck tape, it could mean he was at the murder scene. But DNA evidence can be tricky thing. Sometimes like in this case, the results aren't so simple. The crime lab report said that the sample from the role of duct tape looked like it had DNA from at least three different people. Camille. Hamilton couldn't be ruled out as one of those people. Kevin Pratt, couldn't either his DNA is similar to what was found on the tape. That's why the state database John rated a hit. When DNA from multiple people as found on a piece of evidence, the results get muddied. It's not always clear where the DNA from one person overlaps with another. When that happens, analysts use a probability formula to evaluate the strength of the similarity between the DNA from the evidence and a possible suspect. In this case, the analysts calculated probability the chances that an unrelated person have similar DNA to what was found on the duct. Tape is one in four hundred sixty thousand and that Kevin isn't the only one who has DNA that is similar to what was found on the duct tape. So this four hundred sixty thousand number is not insignificant, but in some cases where DNA from a suspect and a piece of evidence are very similar. That number can be in the billions. The crime labs DNA manager tells detectives Toyota. And Bertrand, the news. It's not a strong enough number to solve the case. Still Toyota hopes he has enough to arrest Kevin. On

There are small, plastic Baggies often use for drugs drug sniffing dogs come to the scene searching the outside and the inside of the home. But nothing is found two people interviewed by police say they think the attack might not have been random, but no proof that the victims were targeted was ever found. The armored Mercedes, the plastic Baggies, detective, Toyota would later say he considered the possibility that the murders were drug related, but concluded that the attack was indeed random. Most of the other relevant evidence is believed to be inside the house where detectives are trying to make sense of what went on the night before it's overwhelming. The three bodies are upstairs in the master bedroom, but detectives discover a bullet and two bullet shells and guest bedroom to, and there are signs of a robbery, not far from the bodies purses are found overturned on the bed with their contents scattered a small black safe is set on top of nearby armoire and it looks as if somebody had been trying to open it.

There were in the back of the house, one of the stains on the windows frame another on the door handle which could have been used by the intruder. The stains were tested to determine if they were actually blood. It's a test involving cotton swab a dropper to have water, some alcohol, an acid base solution and hydrogen peroxide.

But for some reason, the blood had been sitting out in a hot and humid, Florida weather for days before it was collected in may have degraded in the lab was unable to find DNA profile.

Near the cars back window was another roll of duct tape. It's the fifth one found at the scene. Three were in the master bedroom plus one in the garage. The role in the car was collected as evidence along with the others. But something even more interesting was discovered inside the car. Tissues with reddish stains were found on the floor in front of the passenger seat. The stains look like blood. This time a sample came back with the name. But that too became a dead end. The blood belonged Camille daughter Nikita one of the victims in the house. Camille said she didn't know how it got there. She didn't remember any blood in the car. Detectives would never get an explanation for how akitas blood ended up there. Eight months have passed since the murders, its April twenty first twenty ten DNA tests on evidence from inside at outside the Encino street home hadn't produced any suspects. They created more questions. Still searching for a lead detectives, Steve, Toyota and Hector. Bertrand tried again with more forensic tests. They focused on the duct tape. And there was a lot of it. All of the murdered victims had been bound around their ankles with it too, had their respond. A strip of tape was found in the guest bedroom. In fact, there were five roles and total found at the scene. One of them was on a table along the east wall of the master bedroom, just a few feet from the victims. The detectives couldn't be sure that was the role that was used to by faith Davey and Nikita. There were two others found in the same room. One on a table across the room and another in nearby are more, but it was the closest role to the bodies. Thin strips had been peeled off the roll unevenly. So one side had more tape left on it than the other. A close look at the role revealed a small reddish stain. It could be blood, but by April twenty ten parts of the tape had already been tested. And no DNA of a possible suspect had been found. Except this time investigators had a new idea to try to get DNA off the roll. It would start with a bottle of liquid. You can buy at a craft store.

As the two officers were turning the man sprints away. He crosses the road climbs over a metal railing and dashes through the bushes. He's heading toward an area that leads to a small lake. The officers call for backup and set out on foot with flashlights searching for the man. There's no sign of him. They look around the lake, but the only clues they find are Brown leather sandals and black sneakers. The time of that chance meeting could have corresponded with the time the Encino street victims were shot, and it was about a mile from the murder scene. But they couldn't find him.

These are the best sheets ever. Five days after Camille, Hamilton was found by police Miramar detective, Steve Toyota went by her hospital room earlier in the day. She had been trying to help the police artist create a sketch of her attacker. The first time detective, Toyota was here was minutes after Camille is brought in with a gunshot wound to her face. He was the first detective to interview her after the attack, but she was barely able to speak. That time he wasn't even sure she was going to survive, but she did and detective Toyota's been back to the hospital since by the visit on August twenty. Second, Camille had improved substantially Toyota brought along his partner to video record. The interview. Detective. Hector. Bertrand had been on the Miramar force for about seventeen years. He and Steve Toyota were friends to when they were working together as narcotics detectives. They were honored together as the co officers of the year. They were credited with seizing thirty kilos of cocaine along with more than four hundred pounds of marijuana and other illegal drugs and cameos hospital room detective. Bertrand started the video camera recording and his partner asked Camille to walk through what happened on the night of August sixteenth. Although the interview was recorded, Camille. Jaw was shut, and she's at times hard to understand reporter. Steven Hobbs explains her recollection of the attack. Communes memory about what happened was inconsistent over the many statements achieve detectives. You wouldn't. It's bad for her memory to be perfect in a situation like this. I mean, she went through a traumatic event, what alone? What damage could have been caused by the bullet that hit or. But in this interview in the the nine total recorded interviews that shaved a detective, Toyota, you really see that there are inconsistencies in some of the details that she remembers, and Toyota was concerned about some of those inconsistencies. So they did what was called a cognitive interview, or she sat down with a law enforcement officer and it wasn't the rapid fire responses that she was having to get it or hospital bed. She was able to sit and relax and try to tell what she remembered in recalled from those incidents. And it's not her fault that she was not able to remember it every particular detail of what was going on. But it was really important for the detectives to try to get her to remember as much as they can. It's not always clear from all statements. How many details that she actually remembers on her own or how many of the details were built up over the many interviews that you gave with. Detective. Through all of the interviews with Camille detective, Toyota put together bits and pieces of what happened at the NCAA street home that night. The detective would later summarise descriptions in an arrest, affidavit. It went like this. After Camille and the kids unload the car. She gets ready to leave saying goodbye to David Nikita the driveway. Then a man with a gun comes up to her from behind he demands money and orders the three into the home. While inside the man again asks for money, Camille gives him some around eighty bucks. The man then forces them upstairs. That's where faith is in the master bedroom. He directs them inside her room orders, faith to bind Davian Nikita, and Camille hands and feet with duct tape. Then the man tapes up faith and somehow the gun ends up on the floor. Camille makes a move. She crawls over and picks up the gun, then crawls away into the nearby guest bedroom. In their Camille fires, two shots. It doesn't appear either hit the man and he's able to get the gun back from her. He drags her into the hallway and threatens to sexually assault, her Camille resists, and he shoots her.
