Agencies say they're following law with untested rape kits
Three law enforcement agencies are firing back after a statewide report found that they have the most untested rape kits in the state — an accumulation of evidence that has raised concerns.
The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office and the Duluth and St. Cloud police departments say the statewide report doesn’t show the full picture. They say that they’re following the law by saving every shred of evidence while processing only those kits that have value in a criminal case.
