OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A criminal investigation into allegations that Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill’s son was abused is no longer active.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe told The Kansas City Star Friday he would re-evaluate his decision if new evidence emerges. Howe said he still believes the 3-year-old boy was hurt but he declined in April to file charges because he couldn’t prove who injured the child.

The Chiefs suspended Hill on April 25 after a local television station aired a recording of a conversation between Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, discussing the boy’s injuries. Hill has consistently maintained his innocence, saying his son’s health is his top priority.
