Kane's accuser will no longer cooperate with the prosecution

The woman who accused Blackhawks star Patrick Kane of raping her has notified the District Attorney that she is no longer willing to cooperate with the investigation.

No, Kane has not been proven innocent. But he has the right to be presumed to be. Unfortunately, we will never know the truth- and Kane, innocent or guilty, will bear the stigma of being an accused rapist the rest of his life.

Of course, the alleged victim- if the charges are indeed true- will bear a much heavier burden.
