Black Women’s Rape Kits Lost in Illinois Town

In Robbins, Illinois, more than 40 rape cases have gone unsolved because the police department has lost the victims’ rape kits, according to a recent Grio article. City officials have been forced by the state to match lost kits with their victims. This issue is a national problem: As many as 400,000 rape kits nationally have never been tested or fully used.
