Roanoke city police have completed an investigation of an assault charge against a teacher who leapt to his death last week.
A news release says police first began looking into the accusation against Ronald Mayfield about ten days ago.
The student said the assault at Woodrow Wilson Middle School had taken place in late September.
Police say their detective spoke with the student and his family and they said they did not want to pursue the case.
The detective then talked to Mayfield, who put him off until later and said further contact would have to go through an attorney. Police said they determined last Wednesday no charges would be filed.
The next day, Mayfield leaped into the Roanoke River from a Blue Ridge Parkway bridge.
Mayfield had not been told he would not face charges.
Mayfield's family has sent a letter to the school administration, asking why he was never told he would not face charges.

An explosion has reportedly hit a U-S convoy in Iraq, as it was driving through the volatile city of Falluja.
The U-S military has not, however, confirmed the attack.
Meanwhile, another explosion has damaged a pipeline north of Baghdad that carries crude oil and natural gas.
Iraqi officials suspect it was sabotage.

The blast happened last night, sending flames and thick clouds of black smoke into the air.
The pipeline was carrying oil and gas to refineries in Baghdad.
Sabotage of pipelines and other infras-tructure is an ongoing problem for the U-S- run coalition and its Iraqi partners, as they try to revive the country's petroleum industry.

Today the Senate is prepared to vote on a ban of the procedure abortion opponents refer to as partial- birth abortion.
President Bush has promised to sign the ban into law.
It would be the first ban on a specific abortion method since the Roe-versus-Wade decision 30 years ago.
Former President Clinton twice vetoed partial birth abortion bills because they didn't include exceptions to protect the health of the mother.
