In another turn of events, the lawyer of Patrick Kane's accuser has withdrawn from the case over "misrepresentations" about the allegedly tampered with evidence bag.
Attorney Thomas Eoannou scheduled an immediate press conference Thursday night to announce his decision.
"I do not believe the version of events I was given when I received it," Eoannou said. "Because I have no confidence in the story given to me, I'm withdrawing from the case."
Eoannou revealed in a news conference Wednesday that the evidence bag had allegedly been tampered with and anonymously delivered to Kane's accuser's mothers house.
Eoannou said Thursday that "there may have been some fabrications" regarding the story of the bag, and "I don't know what's true or not true."
He admits the bag delivered to the mother's home is "a real evidence bag," but concludes, "I received the storyline from the mother, and I'm not comfortable with that version of events."
Kane is accused of sexually assaulting the woman, but has not been charged.
Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita is scheduled to hold a press conference at 10 a.m. CT on Friday regarding the tampered evidence. You can watch on CSN and CSNChicago.com.
UPDATE: The accuser's family has released a statement following Eoannou's withdrawl from the case that was published by the Buffalo News:
“While we are disappointed that Mr. Eoannou has withdrawn from his role providing advice and counsel in the criminal investigation of Patrick Kane, we have every intention of pursuing this case to a just conclusion.
“It must be emphasized that there exists no evidence or allegation that the accuser herself had any knowledge of the existence of the ‘evidence bag’ until well after it was brought to Mr. Eoannou’s office on Tuesday afternoon. A further statement regarding that matter will be made after the district attorney’s press conference tomorrow.”
