CINCINNATI -- Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters doesn't expect to file charges in an 8-year-old boy's suicide.
"The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office accepts the July 6th conclusion of the Hamilton County Coroner and our investigation is now concluded," spokeswoman Julie Wilson said. "No further action is anticipated."
Sammarco announced Thursday that "the review did not reveal any information inconsistent with our original findings" and that the coroner's office "(has) closed the investigation." Her office was unable to exhume Taye's body for a second physical examination. However, she retrieved his tablet, which was buried with him.
Through her attorney, Taye's mother said she was disappointed the second investigation didn't determine why Taye killed himself.
"Before Gabe was buried, neither the Prosecutor nor the Coroner knew Gabe was attacked in the school bathroom two days before he died," attorney Jennifer Branch said in a statement. "Had the video of the attack been uncovered before the autopsy, more evidence may have been available. It is frustrating that the video was not revealed to his family until months after he died.”
