Tennessee pushes to clear rape kit backlog

A USA TODAY Media Network investigation found that at least 70,000 sexual assault kits have gone untested in a review of about 1,000 police departments, a fraction of the country’s more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies. In Tennessee, there were 9,062 kits untested as of September, including 200 in Nashville, according to the records obtained by USA TODAY. A Metro police spokeswoman said last week that all kits in Nashville have been sent for testing. The report comes at a time when Tennessee is pushing ahead with a more consistent policy that will require law enforcement agencies to test all rape kits when the victim is willing. Many are hopeful the results could reopen hundreds of cases, including Kathy Walsh, executive director of the Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence.
