Lawyer for alleged rape victim in Kane case to hold news conference Wednesday

Read the latest news from this afternoon’s news conference here.


The attorney who represents a woman who alleges that she was raped by hockey star Patrick Kane will hold his first news conference on the matter at 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

Thomas J. Eoannou has represented the woman since shortly after Aug. 2, the date when she alleges that Kane raped her in his Town of Hamburg home after meeting her in a downtown Buffalo night club and inviting her to a private gathering at the home.

Since the investigation began, Eoannou has made no public statements about the case and has repeatedly declined to comment on reports about the probe. An assistant in his office declined to discuss the specific subject matter of the press conference or to say whether the alleged victim will be there.

Town of Hamburg Police and the Erie County District Attorney’s office are investigating the allegations. So far, no charges have been filed against Kane.

The press conference will be held in Eoannou’s office in the Cornell Mansion on Delaware Avenue.
