It's a match

I found that this article explained quite a bit of information that I had never quite understood. One aspect of DNA matching probabilities that would mitigate most of the uncertainty would be to increase the number of STR markers. By adding two or three more markers would increase the certainty of identification by a factor of 50 to 1000, making the probability of mis-identification nil.
