AG’s office releases findings from statewide untested sexual assault kit inventory

The statewide untested sexual assault kit inventory found that close to 90% of Missouri rape kits have never been tested.

Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced today that only 830 of about 7,000 total kits were previously tested.

The AG’s office completed the detailed inventory of kits after receiving help from a federal grant.

The agency estimates it has enough grant money to test at least 1,250 kits but promised to ask for more money to test every kit.
