SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. — The third batch of untested sexual assault kits in Missouri has been sent to a private lab for testing.

All 127 of the kits in batch three were gathered in Saint Joseph this week.

It’s part of a statewide initiative to review thousands of rape kits that have been sitting in police custody for decades.

The same thing has already been done in Springfield and Joplin.
