Nothing! The case was not pursued and eventually the trail ran cold. Richard Cushing, a private investigator that Nancy’s family hired, chalked it up to fear. 

“There was fear, I think, on two counts: fear of the amount of money the World Wrestling Federation had, and physical fear of the size of these people,” Cushing said.

Nancy’s family was left without any criminal prosecution options. They pursued civil charges, filing a wrongful death suit against Snuka in 1985.
