Goofs

While examining Ryan Bartel's home, Ben notices that there is dust on the furnishings, and runs a finger across some of them. He and Conrad should have been wearing latex gloves as a legal precaution, to not disturb any incriminating finger prints, blood, hair, saliva, etc. Even if his home was not the scene of the crime, there may have been evidence in the home of the victim.
