Family drops lawsuit over northern Ohio coroner's suicide ruling after state investigation

A family in northern Ohio has dropped its lawsuit against a county coroner over his ruling that a 19-year-old man committed suicide.
The Sandusky County coroner had ruled the death a suicide but also said the teen might not have known the gun was loaded.
His parents fought that ruling and hired their own experts. The coroner has stuck by his ruling.
The family's attorney tells The Sandusky Register (http://bit.ly/JZnnpf ) that the lawsuit forced the state investigation that showed the death was an accident. He says the family still wants to find out more about what happened.
