Attorney For Accuser In The Patrick Kane Case Has A Lot To Say

09/23/2015 at 1:36pm EDT

from Jared S. Hopkins of the Chicago Tribune,

An attorney for the woman who has accused Blackhawks star Patrick Kane of sexual assault claimed the police evidence bag containing the accuser's rape kit showed up on her mother's doorstep, an explosive allegation that could taint the ongoing investigation.

Criminal Defense attorney Thomas J. Eoannou said the accuser's mother noticed the brown bag on her doorstep when she returned home from work around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. At a news conference in Buffalo, he provided a photograph of the purported bag, which contained the accuser's name as well as the initials of the nurse who performed the evidence collection at the hospital in Erie County.

The Tribune could not immediately confirm its authenticity, and it was unclear if the attorney had confirmed it with the authorities.

Eoannou called for an independent investigation, while acknowledging it will hinder the prosecution's ability to move forward with the case.

"If you're looking for a sure-fire way to scuttle a prosecution, you tamper with evidence," Eoannou said.
