Why fingerprints was taken from the postcards and not the “murder weapon”?

In august 2013 Martha was allowed to go to Poland.
She fulfills the request of one of the Garda officers, and sends postcards with greetings to the Garda post. She attaches a commemorative 1 grosz “for luck”.

This sending was treated as taunting of Garda. The proceedings were initiated, fingerprints were taken from the postcard and 1 grosz.

Why fingerprints were taken from the postcards and 1 grosz, and not from the car which, according to the prosecutor, was "a murder weapon"? Select and vote (You can select more than one answer).

There were only few simple words in English on the postcards. There is no possibility of mistake or misinterpretation of them.

Did the presentation of a few words TRUTHFULLY exceed the capabilities of the Irish media?

How credible are reports on Martha’s case published by the media for four years?

Martha’s case is far more complicated than few simple words on four postcards.

Those postcards was treated as  taunting Garda. Altogether with 1 grosz  it was treated as a bribe (1 grosz is a smallest Polish coin of lowest value). Special procedures were started, with special expert laboratory studies involving taking of fingerprints from the postcard and 1 grosz. The sender and a person from Garda, who received the consignment, were being determined.
