The suspect arrested for murdering Eliza Fletcher kidnapped and raped another woman in September 2021. The kit was finally tested in late August of this year and showed he was the rapist. He was not arrested fast enough to prevent him from killing Eliza Fletcher and destroying the lives of her family.
Because, why? What could possibly justify waiting a year to test a rape kit and run the DNA through CODIS for a match?
We need laws mandating and funding immediate testing.
