FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -- The future for Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill remains unknown tonight.

In recent days, an audio recording first obtained by KCTV5 News between Hill and his then fiancé Crystal Espinal has been released in its entirety by another media outlet.

The recording was of a conversation between the pair as they talked about their relationship with their 3-year-old son.

Hill and Espinal were under investigation in Overland Park for child abuse. The police and prosecutor are no longer investigating.

Hill is waiting to see how the NFL will act on his status with the Chiefs.

KCTV5 has never aired the recording in its entirety, and we’ve received inquiries as to why.

KCTV5 news director Casey Clark appeared live on the Locker Room Show Wednesday on our sister station KSMO-TV to discuss our editorial process regarding the coverage of Hill.

The segment was also streamed live on the KCTV5 News Facebook page.
