Patrick Kane's accuser's attorney resigns

09/24/2015 at 9:22pm EDT

And things get even more complicated, per the Buffalo News:

Buffalo attorney Thomas Eoannou has dropped the Patrick Kane accuser as a client over “misrepresentations” of the evidence bag left at the accuser’s mother’s house.

“I don’t have confidence in the way the bag was found, Eoannou said at a promptly called news conference Thursday night.

One day earlier, a news conference was held by Eoannou to announce the rape kit evidence bag that had contained DNA evidence collected in the Kane investigation was anonymously delivered to the mother of the alleged victim. The mother of the alleged victim found the torn bag at her home, sandwiched between the storm door and the front door at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Eoannou told The Buffalo News on Wednesday the development “calls into question the integrity of all the physical evidence in this case.”

Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III had told The News that Eoannou’s allegations about the evidence “will definitely be investigated.” He said he was surprised to hear that an evidence bag had been left at the home of the alleged victim’s mother and said he has never heard of such a thing in more than 27 years as a prosecutor.

“In 27-plus years, I’ve never seen a rape kit tampered with,” Sedita said. “It will be investigated, professionally investigated.”
