PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A judge has sealed the results of a search warrant requesting blood samples from four Brigham Young football players linked to the investigation of an alleged rape of a 17-year old girl.
Judge Anthony Schofield of 4th District Court received the information Tuesday, then ordered the samples to be taken to the state crime lab for testing and sealed the findings, The Daily Herald newspaper reported Wednesday. A second judge signed a secrecy order.
No charges have been filed in the two-month investigation into the girl's claim that a group of men got her drunk, then gang raped her Aug. 8 in one of the players' apartments.
Provo County Attorney Kay Bryson was out of the office Wednesday and not available for comment.
The university is conducting a separate investigation into whether the players violated the BYU's strict honor code policies, which could result in suspension or expulsion.
