More than two years after Texas started to require all law enforcement agencies to tally up and submit all previously untested rape kits for testing, Dallas Police still have as many as 4,000 untested rape kits. But the department is now getting to work on the backlog, leading to new arrests. Six years after a woman was raped at knifepoint in east Oak Cliff, a suspect was arrested thanks to recently tested DNA, police said at the end of July. Dallas police say recently tested DNA led to the arrest of Joseph Beaty, 41, who is accused of raping a woman at knifepoint in east Oak Cliff six years ago. He is reported to be a suspect in at least five other rapes in the city. Of six sexual assaults, police say four were linked to Beaty “through DNA from rape kits that were tested as part of the department’s effort to clear its backlog of roughly 4,000 untested kits.” The Dallas Morning News reported that detectives identified Beaty, of Irving, as a suspect in two more sexual assaults that took place in 2014. In both of those cases, DNA evidence is not available because the victims didn’t undergo rape exams, stated in an arrest warrant affidavit. The Dallas Morning News quoted Police Maj. Jeff Cotner, who oversees violent crime investigations in the city. He said in the older cases, the rape kits weren’t tested at the outset because the victims had stopped working with police. In the past, police did not test kits in those types of cases. Now all kits are tested. Police say they hope other alleged victims will come forward to bring allegations against Beaty. “We’re not done yet,” Cotner said. “We plan on putting every case we can on him.” He said there are a number of reasons why the victims may have stopped working with police including being traumatized. Cotner also suggested detectives may not have questioned them with sensitivity. He contrasted the situation with today’s approach in which detectives’ partner with victim advocates and counselors to make victims feel more comfortable. Now police are able to go back to
