The attorney of the woman accusing NHL star Patrick Kane of sexual assault called for an independent investigation Wednesday. This comes after the alleged evidence bag once containing the accuser's rape kit showed up on the accuser's mother's doorstep.
"It contains my client's identity. It contains my client's birthday. It contains the location where the rape kit was done. ... I have never seen an evidence bag outside of a police lab, a prosecutor's office, or a court room," attorney Thomas J. Eoannou told reporters.
The accuser's attorney claimed the evidence bag had been tampered with, which could affect the prosecution's case against Kane.
