Maybe the gunshot residue test will be inconclusive.
Maybe the similar ammo found in the house is the most common ammo in that county.
Maybe the distraught drunk driver shot himself in the head and reflexively flung the pistol away in the dark.
Maybe somebody found or stole the missing handgun.
Maybe the witnesses will not seem credible, or confident if they take the stand.
Maybe he'll walk, maybe temporary insanity.
He shouldn't have left his gun at home; it's better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it.
Open carry would have simplified this.
