DENVER -- There could now be closure for hundreds of sex assault victims in Colorado.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation announced Friday it finished processing 3,500 previously untested rape kits.

The agency found DNA matches in 20 percent. That's nearly 700 of the cases.

A state law passed in 2013 required all backlogged sex assault kits to be processed.

The CBI said it sent the results back to the law enforcement agencies that submitted the kits.
