After reports surfaced that one witness in the Patrick Kane investigation had been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury,reports are indicating that the entire case as it stands will go before the grand jury. A 23-person panel of Erie County citizens will hear the evidence about the allegations of rape against Kane starting next week, according to the report.
Kane has been the subject of a police investigation in Hamburg, N.Y., for an incident that allegedly occurred at the Chicago Blackhawks forward's home on the morning of Aug. 2. He has not been charged with a crime.
Local law enforcement officials have been tight-lipped on the proceedings and now that the case is going before a grand jury, the details will likely remain hard to come by. Grand jury proceedings are kept secret by law.
