In a criminal paternity case, which involved analysis of the product of conception, a rare circumstance was observed. The product of conception was triploidy, apparently due to an egg fertilized by two sperm. Since there is little guidance on how to calculate the probability of the DNA evidence given some basic hypotheses, the formulae were derived and are presented herein. These approaches could provide guidance for similar situations if they arise.
