HIV-positive man infected 100 partners, report says

An HIV-positive man infected 18 women and girls in Missouri with the AIDS virus in what public health officials call the largest known documented case of its kind.

Darnell "Boss Man" McGee, 28, had more than 100 known sex partners before he was gunned down on the street last year, according to a report released Wednesday. Those he infected ranged in age from 15 to 29.But public health officials admit their report does not tell the whole story.

Citing confidentiality laws, Illinois health officials refused to even say whether they've tested women who had sex with McGee, even though he lived in East St. Louis, Ill., and is said to have infected women there.
