Sexual Assault Kit Testing Project
In the State of West Virginia, there is no statute of limitations on sexual assault. If you were a victim of a sexual assault between 1998 and 2014, your kit could be part of this project. Kits collected in West Virginia when the victim did not wish to report to law enforcement most likely were (are) housed at Marshall University Forensic Science Center and were not a part of this project. If you would like to know if your kit was involved in this project or would like further information about the status of the kit testing, please read the information below and complete the form at the bottom of the page. While doing so, please keep in mind:
- A valid email address OR phone number is required to receive further information.
- Automatic receipt/response will be sent if submission was successful. If you request information and do not get a response, please re-submit.
- We will make every effort to respond to all requests.
- No information about the case will be disclosed. Updates can be provided about the existence and testing status of a sexual assault kit after validation of identification.
- A follow up meeting (preferably in person) will be required if prosecution is desired.
