Given the twists and turns in the sexual-assault investigation involving Patrick Kane, it would be understandable for those attempting to follow to have some trouble keeping up with all the bizarre developments.

Here is what we know so far:

Back in early August, the Chicago Blackhawks star was accused of rape by a 21-year-old woman from Kane’s hometown of Buffalo. According to the woman, she accompanied a friend to Kane’s house after meeting him at a bar that night. At his house, the woman claims Kane forced himself upon her.



The accuser reportedly had bite marks and a scratch after the encounter, but no DNA was found from the waist down. She did allegedly have Kane’s DNA underneath her fingernails and on her shoulder.

On the night of the alleged incident, Kane enlisted an off-duty police officer to be his driver. The police officer, who reportedly has a longstanding relationship with the hockey player, drove Kane and companions back to his home from the bar.

This week, the attorney for Kane’s accuser,Tom Eoannou, held a press conference to reveal that an evidence bag from the accuser’s submitted rape kit was found on the doorstep of her parents’ house. The bag, which contained another brown paper bag within it, was reportedly ripped and seemingly tampered with before it was delivered by an anonymous source.
