    MI - 10,000 untested rape kits found - Detroit


    More than 10,000 untested rape kits discovered in Detroit storage facility.

    Of the 569 kits that have been tested so far, 136 of those have yielded hits in CODIS. Extrapolating that, this has the potential to solve THOUSANDS of crimes.

    How does this happen?
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    I think Detroit has allot of answering to do. I'd be really ticked off if I'd been waiting results of test never tested. I know we're going to hear we didn't have the money, lets all guess why.

    “I saw numerous racks with cardboard boxes, and they told me at that point those were rape kits. I immediately asked the representatives were they tested rape kits or untested rape kits. And at that point they said, ‘We don’t know,’” Spada told Rock Center.

    Of the 569 kits that have been tested so far, 136 of those have yielded hits in the Combined DNA Index System maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Worthy said. Thirty-two of those hits have been identified as serial rapists, she said.
