Update from someone on the Chiefs board. No idea if true but everyone took it seriously so I suspect he’s a respected member.
Hi all. I have a legitimate update. It is not much, but it is an update nonetheless.
1. This information comes from a very trusted, personal source, who is in a position to know. It is accurate.
2. I will not tell you the source. I don't care if you don't believe me.
3. This information may or may not be made public in the future, so this means that I may or may not be proven right in the eyes of you all. Again - I don't care if you don't believe me.
The state has decided there is a "more-than-likely" reality that the child has suffered neglect/abuse of some sort, and therefore they are petitioning that the child become the state's custody.
I am told this is often a temporary measure, and often a tactic for when investigators are trying to find more information. Often, it is used to pit one spouse against the other to "flip" on their partner, although that doesn't necessarily mean that is the case here. Essentially, the investigators are trying to get to the bottom of HOW and WHY the child suffered harm.
Tyreek has retained a lawyer with experience in this area to represent him in this matter. This does not mean that Tyreek - or anyone - is being charged with anything at this point.
Parents in this type of situation may still have the child "live" with them even if the state has "custody." I am not sure what their current living arrangements are.
It is important to note that this situation doesn't rule out a third party, like a grandparent, either, but it also doesn't mean that is who did it. This is why they are investigating - to find out who did, or didn't, do what.
They have not shared with me what the alleged neglect/abuse entailed, though there are some obvious guesses based on reports.
I am told that if a person had told on another person - and there was sufficient evidence - it would likely have surfaced by now and that action would have been taken, like someone being charged. The fact that no one has been charged yet likely indicates that the state does not have the evidence it needs to bring charges on a person.
That is not to say someone can change their mind and say something, or that the child can act as a witness should he talk.
This could wrap up tomorrow, or it could wrap up 10 months from now. Depends on if the state ever obtains evidence to bring charges on anyone.
