The latest update from the Twitter account says 26 DNA profiles have been entered into DNA databases -- and kits from 75 Kentucky counties have been shipped for testing.

Thousands of rape kits in Kentucky have not been tested.  The kits contain physical evidence from a victim after a sexual assault has occurred.

They've been sitting on shelves, sometimes for years, leaving victims in limbo.
