In April, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that the criminal case against star receiver Tyreek Hill has been reopened. However, Johnson County DA Steve Howe says that’s not the case, as Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star tweets.
Howe previously said that he believed a crime was committed against Hill’s son, but he could not gather enough conclusive evidence to prove who did it. Later, a leaked audio conversation between Hill and his child’s mother seemed to bring some evidence to the forefront, but it’s not quite enough to build the case against the wide receiver.
“It is not an active investigation,” Howe said. “As in any case, if we receive additional evidence we reevaluate.”
While there’s no criminal case against Hill at this time, the Kansas Department for Children and Families is still looking into the matter. NFL discipline seems likely for Hill, but the league office will not act until the KDCF wraps its investigation.
