Dallas police to test more than 4,000 rape kits
More than 4,000 rape kits, some sitting for years, have been untouched until now. The Dallas Police Department is planning to clear that backlog, which could lead to hundreds of new rape investigations and give victims a sense of justice and peace of mind. Dallas Police Department just got the money to test the backlog of kits. About 250 will be sent every month to Orchid Cellmark, a DNA testing company in Farmer's Branch. Officials say each test will cost about $500.
