I’m trying to recall if I’ve ever seen a suppression outcome like this here in the U.S., but nothing’s coming to mind. As you read this story by David Barrett, see if you can recall a similar case here.

Fingerprints and DNA of at least 45 terror suspects must be destroyed after police errors, it has emerged, as new figures revealed biometric details of nearly 8,000 individuals are held on counter-terrorist databases.

An official Government watchdog said police forces failed to complete paperwork which would have allow biometric data to be stored indefinitely.

The error means potentially vital forensic evidence will be lost at a time when Britain is in a high state of terror alert.
