I know that over the years the NJSP has taken a beating by many on various issues. Some deserved, especially back during the crime, it's investigation, the trial, and it's immediate aftermath. Once certain people started stepping forward with questions concerning whether or not they were actually the Lindbergh child, more questions and skepticism arose. But this was a "new" version of the NJSP. Sure no one wants their organization to look badly, even though they would have had nothing to do with it, however, they truly weren't "hiding" things they thought might. It was during this time the NJSP deserves credit for was using whatever technology they could to assist with the evidence. For example, with the Ransom Note fingerprints, the NJSP brought them to the FBI to be examined with laser fluorescents to see if any of the partial prints could be enhanced. That was a brand new technology at that time, and this action shows me they wanted to the truth and were confident in whatever unknowns would be revealed. They also employed a private company named CAL SPAN who, at the time, had a state of the art fingerprint comparison computer program. It was this technology which was used to search all prints against the latents they had.
My guess is that if the DNA evidence technology existed back then as it does now Col. Pagano would had the testing done on behalf of the NJSP itself.
