Prosecutors hammered away at the DNA evidence, saying its all jurors need to convict. DUSEK: This is the smoking gun. Danielle's blood is on that jacket. A jacket that belongs to David Westerfield. But his defense attorney said Wednesday that police never took photographs of that bloodstain. He told the jury no one know if it splattered, or dripped, or was simply transferred from another piece of clothing. STEVEN FELDMAN/DEFENSE ATTORNEY: I want to know how that blood got there. You have the right to know how that blood got there. The defense says there is no physical evidence that links Westerfield to the family's home. And the age of bugs found on Danielle's body indicate it was dumped after he was under surveillance. They've also attacked the Van Dames swinging lifestyle, saying the couple smoked dope and invited sex partners into their home the night Danielle disappeared. CHRIS LAWRENCE/CBS NEWS))
