Colorado police departments failing to test rape kits

"A six-month investigation by KMGH-Denver found police departments across Colorado were failing to test hundreds of rape kits, critical evidence taken from a victim’s body after a sexual assault."

"While most departments said kits are rarely tested when the victim knows the suspect, one police department said these rape kits were prohibited from being tested due to state and federal law."
