I think you're right about the fMRI/EEG mistake. I thought for a moment The Times was intentionally expanding the term "brain fingerprinting" from the specific Farwell EEG work to mean neuro lie detection paradigms in general, but the slip on the "brain scan" evidence in their description of the murder case and the (mis)quote from Snead commenting that interrogators could just "hook up" suspected criminals to an fMRI machine (I don't ever remember "hooking up" people to an fMRI machine, but you do kind of "hook up" subjects for an EEG experiment) makes me think they just goofed. And fixed a quote to match their story, most likely.

Bah.
