These type of things take time. First, the accident report came out several months later (in late November I believe), I saw them on Lake Pirate. Second, it is often only after some time people are over the shock that their situation may really sink in. There has only been about six months since the accident. I have seen litigation take years.
This was a horrific accident, and I must say very puzzling. If I read between the lines Bonds is trying to find someone who can verify or counter this "eyewitness" who has come forward.
Good luck to all.
