That's the word from the Texas Rangers today. A spokesman said the agency is continuing its investgation into 52 year-old Joseph Denton.

When it's over, a report will be filed, and it will be up to the D.A.'s office to decide if charges are in store.

It was last week that Norangel Velez and his father say they accidentally wandered onto Denton's property.
