Attorney for Patrick Kane accuser quits case over ethical concerns

Patrick-Kane-rape-kit

There was a major development in the Patrick Kane rape case Thursday.

The lawyer for the woman accusing Kane of rape, Thomas Eoannou, quit the case after he says he learned information about the evidence bag was misrepresented to him.

Eoannou’s announcement comes a day after he went public saying the rape kit had been tampered with. He said it was found on the doorstep of the accuser’s mother and was ripped open. The new development may mean that the bag was not tampered with.

Eoannou made it clear that the story of the bag does not affect the woman’s allegation. He said based on the way the story of the bag was told to him, “it’s my ethical obligation to withdraw.” The bag was authenticated by the Erie Country Medical Center, where the rape exam was performed.

The Blackhawks star has not been charged with any crime, but a grand jury will investigate.
