Prosecutor: NHL Rape Accuser’s Mom Lied

The Illinois district attorney handling the Patrick Kane rape investigation said Friday that a bag found at the accuser’s mother’s home—which prompted allegations of evidence tampering—was really just an “elaborate hoax” by the mother. “The evidence in the case wasn’t tampered with nor was it compromised,” the district attorney said. The drama around the bag included the accuser’s lawyer saying that it had been left anonymously at the mother’s home, and then retracting that claim. The lawyer subsequently resigned after saying that he no longer believed the story spun by the accuser’s mother.
