The Patrick Kane rape case has yet another bizarre, unexpected twist. The lawyer representing Patrick Kane's accuser has withdrawn himself completely from the case Thursday night.

The family of the woman has issued a statement: According to WGRZ:

"While we are disappointed that Mr. Eoannou has withdrawn from his role providing advice and counsel in the criminal investigation of Patrick Kane, we have every intention of pursuing this case to a just conclusion.

"It must be emphasized that there exists no evidence or allegation that the accuser herself had any knowledge of the existence of the 'evidence bag' until well after it was brought to Mr. Eoannou's office on Tuesday afternoon. A further statement regarding that matter will be made after the District Attorney's press conference tomorrow."
