Patrick Kane's Accusers mother?

I believe she very well just got Patrick Kane off of a rape charge.

this does not look good in anyway for the victim.

I'm watching this press conference and the mother has absolutely destroyed any chance of Kane being arrested let alone prosecuted. The alleged victim's attorney resigned from her case. At this point she won't even get a settlement.

If anything Kane might sue the living shit out of her which he should.

havent been keeping up

whats going on with the mother

How about posting a story? :)

The sexual assault case against Patrick Kane appeared to be weakening Thursday night as the attorney for the woman who accused the Blackhawks star of sexual assault abruptly quit the case, and sources say a key witness appears to be reluctant to testify.

This comes one day after the woman's lawyer called a news conference to allege an evidence bag that once contained the rape kit from the case had been anonymously left at the home of the accuser's mother. Attorney Thomas Eoannou, however, announced late Thursday that he no longer believed the account provided by the mother and therefore was ethically obligated to withdraw from the case.

The developments over the past two days suggested that the case against Kane had significant weaknesses, including DNA evidence that Kane's attorney said favors the player's claims of innocence.

Kane attorney Paul Cambria announced Wednesday that a DNA analysis in the case found that samples taken below the accuser's waist contain "a mixture" of male profiles. None of the DNA, he said, belonged to Kane.

He suggested that someone fabricated the evidence bag story in an effort to downplay the significance of the forensic results.

"They tried to undermine the science in the case," Cambria said late Thursday. "That speaks volumes about the credibility of the (rape) allegation."

Eoannou — a prominent Buffalo attorney — alleged Wednesday that a ripped, empty evidence bag that once contained the woman's rape kit had been left anonymously on her mother's doorstep a day earlier. He said the accuser's mother told him she found it wedged inside a screen door when she arrived home around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

But a tired-looking Eoannou said Thursday night he began to have doubts about the story around noon Thursday when "information was provided" that outlined "misrepresentations" about the evidence bag.

"I do not believe the way in which it was explained to me was the manner in which it was found," he said, wearing a black pinstripe suit and speaking from the same location as the previous day. "I have looked into that and I do not have confidence in that version of the events."

Eoannou read from a statement and took a few questions from reporters. At one point, he referred to Kane's accuser by her first name — a mistake that he attributed to exhaustion.

Eoannou insisted the bag issue should not cast doubts on the woman's sexual assault allegation. She still wants the case to move forward and said there was no evidence that she knew about the bag until her lawyer received it, according to a statement released by the family to Buffalo media.

The tampering accusation prompted an investigation by Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita III, who had scheduled a news conference for Friday morning to address the allegation. Sedita has never publicly acknowledged the investigation into a 21-year-old western New York woman's allegation that the 26-year-old winger raped her at his lakefront mansion early on Aug. 2.

He would not comment late Thursday.

The Tribune previously has reported that Kane spent the night of Aug. 1 at SkyBar, a popular nightclub about 15 miles from his Hamburg home, and he stayed past midnight with friends. An off-duty Buffalo police officer drove Kane, a male friend, the accuser and her friend to the player's home after leaving the bar.

Multiple sources told the Tribune that the female friend — a college classmate — no longer fully backs the accuser's version of events and has expressed reluctance to testify. Without her corroboration, it would be harder for prosecutors to move the case forward, those sources said.

An attorney for the accuser's friend could not be reached for comment.

And in a sign of Cambria's growing confidence that Kane won't be charged, he went on the offensive against Kane's accuser Thursday night. Calling Kane the "victim" in the case, Cambria suggested the superstar may sue the woman for defamation when the investigation ends.

"I feel Patrick Kane has been victimized," Cambria said.

Cambria — who held a news conference at his home late Thursday — said charges should be brought against anyone intentionally misrepresented the bag's origins. He expects Sedita to investigate the situation.

"That's what should happen here," Cambria said. "Anyone who is doing that sort of thing should be indicted."

The Erie County crime lab said in a statement Wednesday that all evidence in the Kane investigation was accounted for and was still in its original evidence package, which suggests that the bag purportedly left on the doorstep may not be connected to the case. A spokesman would not say if the label or markings on the bag were consistent with those used by local law enforcement.

The Hamburg Police Department, which conducted the initial investigation, called its handling of the evidence "unassailable."

Eoannou said Thursday that it's a real evidence bag, but he did not explain how it was obtained. The label contained privileged information such as the accuser's birthday and the nurse's initials.

"The bag is a real evidence bag from this case," he said. "There's no question about that."

The Blackhawks are scheduled to be in Montreal for a preseason game Friday, but it is unclear if Kane and other top players will be traveling there. Cambria told the Tribune earlier Thursday that he had spoken with Kane about the evidence bag, but he declined to discuss the player's reaction.

"He's fine now that he's playing hockey. That's his whole life," Cambria said. "We're all paying attention, trying to work toward this being resolved and over."

After listening to this there is no doubt in my mind that this girl with the help of her family was going after money and had never been raped.

both mother and daughter should go to jail for this shit.

what a shit show.

Cliff notes from the Press Conference

The bag the victims attorney waved around was not a police evidence bag. It was given to the victims mother at the hospital for her to put the victims shirt in when she go home as the victim went home and changed before she went to the hospital the night of the alleged rape. The police went to the mothers house the next day and got the shirt and put it in a evidence bag. They did not take it out of the bs bag as the mother never put it in one. The Officer leading this press conference has said multiple times "the mother is a liar, this was a hoax, she knew it wasn't true". He also said "the victim will not speak to the police regarding this or for any questioning since the day after the alleged rape". Why would a victim not want to talk to the police but her attorney has blown up Kane's attorney's phone since the morning after this supposedly happened?

They have video of the rape kit the entire time it's at the police station. Chain of custody is 100% intact.

Victims attorney resigned from the case last night.

This is 100% nothing more than a attempt at a money grab. This broad had two different seaman samples in her and neither was Kane's nor any DNA around her pelvic region from Kane.

Money grab from Day 1.
