JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A report found Juneau is the "worst city when it comes to testing rape kits."

The Juneau Empire reports Vanessa Nason, a researcher and journalist with the news site MuckRock, has been working since April to discover what happens when a police department takes physical evidence from a sexual assault or rape.

Nason sent dozens of information requests to police departments across the country. She received a response from the Juneau Police Department in late October. Nason says, "Nationwide, it's one of the worst we've seen."
