DNA Test Links Stand-up Comic to College Rapes

Vinson Champ, a stand-up comedian who travels the college circuit, is allegedly responsible for a string of rapes across colleges in the Midwest area. DNA tests confirm that he was responsible for the sexual assault of a woman at Kenosha's Carthage College. Other DNA tests indicate that Champ was also responsible for two attacks in Iowa. On June 17, Champ was ordered to stand trial for the March 5th rape of a teacher in a University of Nebraska-Omaha computer lab.
