    Sources: Student Declines Interview With Police Reporting
    Andy Sheehan PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ?

    There are signs the potential sexual assault case against Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could be falling apart.

    First the revelation that investigators apparently don't have key physical evidence of a crime.

    Now the KDKA Investigators have learned that they could be running into an even bigger roadblock.

    Just yesterday, KDKA learned that investigators were no longer requesting DNA from Roethlisberger.

    Tonight, KDKA's Andy Sheehan reports that the alleged victim in the case has declined to be re-interviewed by police.

    The fact that Georgia authorities no longer want Roethlisberger's DNA is significant to criminal justice experts who say there is now no physical evidence linking Roethlisberger to any potential crime.

    "This statement from the authorities in Milledgeville, Georgia, markedly weakens the case, the potential case and significantly diminishes the likelihood of formal charges being filed against Roethlisberger," Dr. Cyril Wecht, a forensic pathologist, said.

    Not only do prosecutors apparently not have any physical evidence of a crime, they may also be lacking a cooperating victim at this point.

    Sources close to the investigation say that investigators have had trouble re-interviewing the woman since the night of the incident.

    Sources say the 20-year-old co-ed did not show up for a scheduled interview a week ago yesterday and that as of Friday she still had not come in to be questioned.

    And the same source says the investigation seems to have it a brick wall.

    "Well they would have hit a brick wall," Robert Del Greco, a Pittsburgh area defense attorney, said.

    Del Greco says if the victim does not cooperate, the case falls apart.

    "Bottom line is no cooperative victim under these circumstances, probably no crime," he said.

    In an interview, lead investigator Tom Davis of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation openly discussed the fact that Roethlisberger has not been re-interviewed, but declined to comment on whether the victim had been re-interviewed.

    And in an email, the victim's attorney, Lee Parks, of Atlanta, also told KDKA's Andy Sheehan, "No comment."

    But Del Greco says if she doesn't come forward, prosecutors may have to suspend the investigation.

    "Unless you're willing to cooperate with us in the prosecution of a crime, we are not going to call this a crime," he said.

    Dee Dub...There is a difference between getting the facts and running off at the mouth. You shouldn't swing your arms around without knowing the facts yourself.

    That goes without saying, but just because she is lying doesn't mean he wouldn't pay her off to go away.

    How long can they take up to bringing up charges ? Can they or she file charges say like months or a year from now ? I always thought you have about 160 days or something like that, to file charges.
