The Charlotte Observer: No state employee errors in Boone hotel case, says DHHS

From The Charlotte Observer:

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services has determined that no state employees “erred” in the events surrounding three carbon monoxide deaths at a Boone hotel.

“The department’s direct involvement in investigating the deaths in Boone was limited to processing the specimens submitted to the State Toxicology Lab for analysis,” state spokesman Ricky Diaz said in an email to the Observer. “Based on our review of the facts, we do not believe that any state employee erred in performing their responsibilities.”
