Unsolved Rapes Justice Delayed
Cara Smith, the chief of policy and communications for the Cook County Ill. Sheriff's department, stands at a guardrail in Robbins, Ill., on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, at the site of an alleged rape. DNA collected in that 1991 case recently matched a convicted felon -- but he could not be arrested because Robbins police hadn't submitted the evidence in a timely fashion to the state crime lab. The rape kit in that case is one of nearly 200 in Robbins that Sheriff's investigators found that were never tested or, if they were, were never investigated. (AP Photo/Martha Irvine)
