I would re-test Rita at another lab to be absolutely certain she doesn't match
you, before seriously confronting the possibility that she may not be your
biological sibling. It's still possible that Argus got your sample exchanged
with someone else's.

You haven't said whether your parents are still living because, if so, this is
obviously a question to bring to them (e.g., was she adopted?). But, again, I
would re-test Rita at another lab, first.
