A new report from KCTV5 uncovered more information about Tyreek Hill, his fiance Crystal Espinal and their three-year-old son.

In a segment that aired live on Tuesday evening, KCTV5 shared parts of a 911 call that describes the conditions that caused authorities to take the young child from Hill’s home and put him in protective custody.

The dispatch audio from the call involves an allegation that their son was wandering around unattended while Espinal, who is seven months pregnant with twins, was passed out.

The district attorney recently closed the case against Hill and Espinal, which centers around a broken arm and two separate police visits to the home, clearing them because he could not find enough evidence to charge them with a crime. He indicated at the time, however, that he knew a crime had been committed.

However, an investigation by KCTV5 uncovered damning audio recordings that appear to be Espinal and Hill speaking to one another. In those recordings, the person who is said to be Hill is accused by the person said to be Espinal — sharing what she said their son told her — of having been the one who broke his arm.

Additionally, she accuses him of punching their son in the chest. The person said to be Hill also threatens her after she said their son is scared of him, saying, “You should be scared of me too, b****.”

Since those recordings have gone public, the district attorney has re-opened the case against Espinal and Hill. The Kansas City Chiefs have also suspended Hill indefinitely while they await more information on this ongoing case.
