Subject Sexual Abuse
Source Courier-Journal (Louisville, Ky.)
State KY

Summary A narrative account of a bungled hunt for one of Louisville's most prolific serial rapists, a manipulative predator who attacked 14 women over four years and escaped detection in part because of sloppy police and turf battles. Evidence was lost in some cases and in others rape kits weren't processed to save money. The newspaper's account showed how a single detective who believed the crimes were connected was able to convince his supervisors they were linked and how he reopened cases that others had closed for lack of evidence.
