I was living in Rochester when this occurred so I kept up with it over the years.  There have been a couple of other times over the years that the investigation heated up again but nothing ever came of them.  As we all know as time passes it gets harder and harder to collect usable evidence.  It really may be that like the initial investigation found this was truly an accident, if it was there certainly has been an awful lot of time spent investigating it uselessly.  If on the other hand it did start through criminal actions it would be nice to see the culprit arrested and prosecuted.
