Another serial rapist is terrorizing Memphis.
All of the attacks happened in apartment complexes, with the latest one reported Sunday. But police will not say why they have connected at least 10 attacks dating back to 2014.
Police say they do not have physical evidence connecting the crimes. Does this mean they haven’t tested the victims’ rape kits?
Just days after our press conference, news of this latest attack is a reminder that Memphis must ensure proper police response to sex crimes. Read our proposed solutions here. Watch our interview with WREG here.
People for the Enforcement of Rape Laws is a program of the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center to monitor law enforcement responses to sexual violence. Our goal is to end the law enforcement and political practices that effectively decriminalize sexual violence. To this end, we connect victims with information about their rights and equip individuals with tools to advocate for themselves and others and advocate for fair criminal justice policies. We urge you to learn more about America’s hidden rape crisis, where it has been exposed, and why it matters. We invite you to take action and support our efforts to make sure law enforcement takes rape seriously.
