Baltimore Police Reopen Discarded Rape Claims - Joy Lepola

The move comes after an audit revealed that Baltimore has the highest number of "unfounded" sexual assault cases in the country.

It reviewed 98 rape investigations classified as unfounded between January 2009 and August 2010, and found 52 should be considered rapes or other sex crimes.Baltimore Police Reopen Discarded Rape Claims - Joy Lepola
