Day 4 of the Mark Torre Jr. trial involved testimony from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and their analysis of the evidence take from Torre’s Yigo residence the night GPD officer Elbert Piolo was shot.
The FBI agent who testified today was Forensics Examiner Joshua Friedman, who specializes in trace evidence. He examined the hair, fibers, and fabric that were collected by Guam Police Department’s Crime Scene Investigators.
After testing both Piolo’s and Torre’s clothing, he concluded that the fibers on the end of the muzzle of the gun found in Piolo’s truck matched the fibers of Piolo’s shirt.
“I personally took the last microscope slide and put those under the microscope and examined them,” Friedman said.
Those same shirt fibers also matched fibers that were collected from the vacuum sweepings of Piolo’s truck. Agent Friedman also concluded that the vacuum sweepings were not consistent with originating from Torre’s clothing.
