A CNN investigation found that law enforcement agencies across the country destroyed hundreds of rape kits tied to cases that could still be prosecuted.
The destruction occurred since 2010 and followed flawed and incomplete investigations that relegated rape kits to shelves in police evidence rooms until they were destroyed. Dozens were trashed mere weeks or months after police took custody of the evidence, records showed. CNN investigated hundreds of cases and presented an in depth examination of the issue.

In collaboration with designers on CNN Motion team I worked on a few animations that are a part of the interactive CNN Investigates
piece “Destroyed”.
