NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s a forensic nightmare. The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office is reviewing more than 800 rape cases in which critical tests of DNA evidence may have been botched.
City officials are raising a scary question: are there rapists on the loose in New York City?
Council Speaker Christine Quinn then on Friday asked the question on many people’s minds.
“Are there potential perpetrators out there on the street, people who have raped and sexually assaulted New Yorkers who weren’t prosecuted?” Quinn told reporters, including CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.
