Only one piece of forensic evidence had been found,
the red fibers on the murdered prostitute,
the first prostitute strangled in the wood.
The fibers didn't MATCH anything the prositute was wearing.

Did the famous jounalist own anything that MATCHED those fibers?

以上两个含有MATCH的句子怎么翻译比较通顺?

纤维跟妓女身上的衣物不匹配。
这样翻译通顺吗?

If you ask me, in this context, ABSOLUTELY NOT!  This is like saying "this scarf goes well with your coat".  There's not the slimmest chance of some fibres going well with some attire.

match here means "appear to be identical with or to be the same as"

If there is a match, the fibers appear to be identical with fibers in something the prostitute was wearing.
