Pennsylvania State Police questioned the survivor for hours before releasing him.

“We've been collecting evidence for quite a while, conducting several interviews," said state police Lt. Daniel Ekis. "Consulted with the district attorney's office the whole time. It's their determination as of today that we're not going to file any charges."

However, that could change, he said.

"We're going to continue to conduct interviews, go through the evidence that we recovered today and continue to have discussions with them to see if anything's possible," Ekis said.
