It wasn't quite clear as to why Hook was given access to the DNA, I tend to believe it was because he was pushing the theory the police were, and they hoped this would put an end to the case.

I talked to a lawyer friend of mine about this case specifically, she suggested that the jury may acquitted because they offered more motivations and by extension suspects.

I believe with everything that Olson was behind the murder.
