On Monday, Overland Park police announced an investigation into Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, Tyreek Hill, over two separate child abuse allegations, including an alleged battery, at his Overland home.
According to Bleacher Report, news surfaced of the investigation on Friday, but Johnson County District Attorney, Steve Howe, refused to provide further information before the investigation was complete. However, despite the D.A.’s refusal to provide additional details, the Kansas City Star reported that both the police and the Department of Children and Families were looking into an incident that reportedly left Hill’s three-year-old son with a broken arm.
In fact, in a police report obtained by the publication – dated March 5 – Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, were listed in a report as “others involved” on an allegation of child abuse or neglect. However, neither party was charged in that case.
In another incident report from March 14, which focused on battery as an alleged crime against a “juvenile” victim, Espinal was the only party listed under “others involved.” But, according to the publication, in Kansas, usually only the front page of a police report is released in an ongoing investigation, and “information about suspects or other details of an investigation are often located on the back page of the report or on subsequent pages that are not typically open to the public.”
In the meantime, the Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed their knowledge of the situation.
