"Mel Gibson investigation focusing on medical records, text messages, sources say"

From the those-who-ignore-celebrity-cases-are-destined-to-learn-about-them-from-students file, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times:

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department investigation into Mel Gibson is focusing on physical evidence, witness testimony and text messages -- not highly publicized audio recordings -- to determine whether he should be charged with hitting his ex-girlfriend and/or endangering their child, law enforcement sources told The Times.

. . .

Detectives are working to overcome several obstacles to the investigation, including the fact that Grigorieva did not report the key incidents for several months and that some of the potential evidence has already been leaked to the tabloid media, sources said.
