So naturally, Barry didn't want to unmask to the whole city in one go, its much better to do it one person at a time like he's doing. Facetiousness aside, unmasking is not an option so...
Lets begin with the obvious, apparently, Devoe had tried to fight off Barry and hence got Barry's DNA under his fingernails. Ok, so, if that's true there would be some marks on Barry and in said marks would be traces of Devoe's DNA. Why the heck didn't the defence submit Barry to a full examination, the doctor wouldn't have found a mark on him.
Secondly, Barry is a trained CSI and has investigated MANY murders. If Barry wanted to kill somebody, he could have surely done a much better job as he'd know what mistakes other murderers made to get themselves caught. Yet, he was stood over the body.
Thirdly, speaking of stood over the body, how is it, that Barry didn't have so much as a drop of blood on him when he was arrested? Did he change his clothes after the murder? Nobody think to ask that?
Fourthly, where the heck was Devoes wheelchair? It wasn't in the loft, so how did a frail man with ALS manage such a feat of getting to the loft without it? And if Barry killed Devoe elsewhere, why would he bring the body and dump it on his rug?
I know that it was a good setup, but those to my mind are four big glaring holes. The most important being that Barry would have no signs of injury on him. I mean, fact is, you take all those things individually they just appear as little discrepancies but if you look at them all together any jury would surely think, yeah, hang on, how did Devoe get up there? Why was Barry totally clean, none of his clothes bloodied? Why was it such a sloppy crime scene considering he's an experienced CSI? And most importantly, we know from the fingernails, Devoe fought for his life, yet, Barry has no marks on him?
Seriously, I could have got Barry off. Then factor in that his wife has a "new lover" and yeah, its looking mighty fishy really.
