More Duke rape case news

It just keeps getting worse and worse Sad

2nd DNA Test Shows No Conclusive Match

A second round of DNA tests shows no conclusive match between any Duke University lacrosse players and a woman who says she was raped at a team party, defense attorneys said.

The tests showed genetic material from a "single male source" was found on a vaginal swab taken from the accuser, but that material did not match any of the players, said attorney Joseph Chesire, who represents a player who has not been charged.

"In other words, it appears this woman had sex with a male," Cheshire said Friday night at a news conference with other defense attorneys. "It also appears with certainty it wasn't a Duke lacrosse player."

... The "single male source" who matched the genetic material found on the vaginal swab take from the victim is named in a report on the second round of DNA tests, which were done at a private lab. Cheshire said the man "is known to the Durham police department" but declined to give his name or the nature of his relationship with the accuser.

That last part is troubling to say the least!
