BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The lawyer for a woman accusing Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane of sexual assault abruptly quit the case Thursday night, saying he’s no longer comfortable representing the woman because of how her mother reported finding an evidence bag they believed once held the woman’s rape kit.

Thomas Eoannou told reporters he believes there were, what he called, “fabrications” in the story of how the bag was found. And he added that he’s no longer sure if the bag ever contained evidence from the investigation.

“I can only say that I don’t know what’s true and what’s not true,” Eoannou said during a hastily called news conference at his downtown Buffalo law office. “I received the story line from the mother. And it’s my position that I’m not comfortable with that version of the events.”

Despite his concerns, Eoannou said he’s still confident in the woman’s allegations against Kane.
