Rafe argues they can't rule out the possibility. Andre brings up the body matching Stefano's DNA. Rafe explains that the DNA was not in Shawn's hands the whole time so it could've been tampered with.

Kate brings up the unusual transactions in their European accounts and says it could explain that. Rafe wants access to all those records as this could be huge. Andre states that they don't have that authority so they will have to contact Chad. Steve says Chad isn't returning their calls and Kate hasn't been able to reach him either.
