Baez cross examines Murdock. No duct tape found in garage- says Murdock. State flew through pictures of evidence just basically asking for confirmation and then moving on. Baez digging in to it now.The only item where the same duct tape was found is on gas can. 
No where in the house was the same brand duct tape used. Witness excused! I'm so surprised the stickers weren't talked about more.
