Summary An ABC News 20/20 investigation "reveals that, although DNA is often the best evidence to catch a rapist, hundreds of thousands of rape evidence kits sit unprocessed in police storage rooms across the country. Police say many rape kits sit unanalyzed simply because there is no money to process them, on average $500 per kit."
