Detective Scott Angulo closed the first case against quarterback Jameis Winston, who won the Heisman Trophy last December, 66 days after a woman accused him of rape. Angulo didn't interview any critical witnesses or gather DNA, despite the fact the accuser came forward within hours with evidence of semen in her underwear and bruises on her body.
