A mother's agony over her son’s death. News on 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright received an e-mail from Scott Bolton's mother who lives in Texas.

She's frustrated the Tulsa County DA hasn't filed charges in her son's death yet. She writes, "It has been over a month since Scott was senselessly taken from us. For us, there will be no wedding, no babies and no future, just memories and the choking feeling of injustice.”

Scott died outside a downtown club after someone punched him one time, he fell, hit his head and died later.

The prosecutor says the problem with this case is one that shocks even him. Tulsa Co Assistant DA Doug Drummond: "The most difficult thing and something I haven't seen in all my years as a prosecutor is we have witnesses who saw what happened and won't come forward. It's a pretty sad state of mind to see someone die and not come forward and we're pretty disappointed about that."

The DA says this is a high priority case and they're not giving up on filing a manslaughter charge.
