Marion, Ill. – The Marion Police Department is investigating multiple rape cases from the last three years.

Marion Police Chief Dawn Tondini says there are no suspects and the incidents have been sporadic in an article published by The Southern Illinoisan. Tondini says there is no recurring pattern.

Tondini says there has been one report of rape each year since 2011. The comments come after other reports of a possible serial rapist in Marion that city officials have denied.
