Patrick Kane's attorney, Paul Cambria, held his own press conference following a Wednesday press conference by the attorney for Kane's accuser in which the attorney, Thomas J. Eoannou, said that the rape kit evidence bag was tampered with and delivered anonymously to the accuser's mother's home and that he will be requesting an independent investigation into how the bag was obtained and who it was obtained by.
"We're happy with the results of this analysis. Obviously, someone else isn't happy with the results," Cambria told reporters Wednesday. "They would have an incentive to say it's compromised. We have none."

The rape kit was performed at a local hospital after the night of Aug. 2, when Kane allegedly sexually assaulted the victim at his home in Hamburg, N.Y., after a night out drinking.
Eoannou's allegations were followed up by a statement Erie County Commissioner of Central Police Services John Glascott:
“All evidence related to this case that was given to Erie County Central Police Services by the Town of Hamburg Police Department is accounted for and remains in its original packaging in the possession of Erie County Central Police Services,” Glascott said in a written statement. “This includes the evidence in the rape kit and the packaging itself. This evidence has been analyzed and reports of that analysis sent to the appropriate agencies.”
Kane has yet to be charged with a crime and has been participating in team activities with the Blackhawks, including training camp and Tuesday's preseason game.
Kane's only comments on the matter came on the first day of training camp, when he read a statement saying he was confident he'd be absolved of any wrongdoing.
