You can respectfully say that you've already given your statements and short of a subpoena you shouldn't have to provide another statement.

I agree with the other attorney responses that short of a subpoena, you can ignore them. However, think of the family of the deceased. They want closure also. Refusing to give a requested statement will just delay the inevitable: suit will be filed, a subpoena will be issued, and you will be asked to go to the Court to give the statement instead of them coming to you.
Unfortunately, there wasn't a camera recording the whole thing and our memory (for most of us) is not perfect. Sometimes a prior statement given by you raises addtional questions because your statement does not match the physical evidence. Therefore, additional questions need to be answered to understand - after the fact - what happened.
I congratulate and thank you for your effort to do your civil duty. I wish more would do the same. My job would be easier.
