A woman is sexually assaulted in texas by someone she just met. She gives the investigators a lot of helpful information to assist them in finding the suspect. (Location, physical description, auto description, etc, although no name.) She's presented with a photo line up and selects one. Investigators don't inform the victim if it's the suspect they also suspect, only that they are giving it to the DA.
Please explain this legal protocol of withholding suspect info. Also, if/when the suspect is arrested, will the victim be notified?
Further helpful info: Rape kit is still in process, although possible fingerprint evidence was provided to the lab. Additionally, video surveillance of ID presented by suspect likely created effective leads independent of DNA.
Thank you for your help!
