CBS Report Leads to DNA Test Policy Change in San Antonio

cbsinvest11-17.jpgA 5-month CBS investigative report by CBS News’ Armen Keteyian and producer Laura Strickler led to a policy change this week within the San Antonio police department:

In response to a CBS News investigation on untested rape kits, the San Antonio Police Department made a major announcement: it will now test all rape kits in stranger cases and will also go back and test all untested stranger rape kits in storage.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus began the Monday press conference by saying, “We are here this morning to talk about the CBS story about the rape kits.” He told reporters, “We don’t want to let any case where somebody was sexually assaulted fall through the cracks…We want to raise the potential that person is going to get caught by pulling them into a database.”
