The criminal child abuse investigation involving Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has reportedly been closed.

According to a report from the Kansas City Star, prosecutors are no longer actively working the criminal case. "It is not an active investigation," Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said to the Kansas City Star on Friday morning.

"As in any case, if we receive additional evidence we reevaluate."

As for when the case officially closed, that remains a mystery, but it is officially closed as the Chiefs report to camp.

Here's a statement from Hill's lawyer:

"It’s my understanding the criminal investigation has been closed for quite some time now and obviously there’s been some misinformation about that, but it is closed."

The Chiefs announced Hill will not be a part of offseason workouts until a verdict is reached.

With the news that the case has been closed, the Chiefs could make a decision on Hill soon. The star wide receiver has been suspended from team activities for six weeks after the investigation was re-opened earlier this spring.

Kansas City fields one of the most-potent offenses in the nation when Hill is on the field.
