Backlogged Rape Kit Test Snares Ex-Cop

Rape kit testing helps indict former MPD officer in a 2000 rape

We've done tons of stories on the rape kit backlog in Memphis.  Some untested kits stretch back into the 1980's.  It's been a PR nightmare for public officials.  But cases like this may help change things.  One of the backlogged kits was tested.. And investigators say the DNA matched a former Memphis Police officer.  He was living under a new name in Atlanta.  But you know what they say about the "long arm of the law."
