NEWS: PATRICK KANE EVIDENCE TAMPERING?
A rape investigation involving Chicago Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane took a bizarre turn Wednesday when the attorney for the accuser said an empty paper bag that once held the woman's rape kit had been secretly placed in the doorway of her mother's home. Kane's attorney said both sides in the case have been told that none of Kane's DNA was found "from the waist down" on the woman. Police officials responded that no packaging is missing from the rape kit. "Something seriously has gone amiss," attorney Thomas Eoannou told reporters during a news conference, where he held up the wrinkled brown bag that he said pointed to the possibility of evidence tampering. He said the woman's mother discovered the bag Tuesday afternoon when she came home from work for lunch. She found the bag folded up between a storm door and her front door, he said.
