    Wouldn’t it be a good idea to share some info to identify the rapist? This has been proven to help. A facial composite? A graphical representation of the victim’s memory of the face, as recorded by a composite artist. These images are used to reconstruct the suspect’s face in hope of identifying them. It can really help! If not a facial composite then at least some identifying features? Tall, short, ethnicity, hair colour, accent, clothing, tattoos.. etc. Why the total lack of any information? It’s almost as if you want the rapist to get away with it.
