Grasping at Straws in Valerie Hamilton case

In the Charlotte case of Valerie Hamilton, the autospy has revealed that she died of an overdose.

When Hamilton, daughter of a local police chief, died, it sparked a national manhunt for a former sex offender she was seen with around the time she died. Allegation immediately assumed that she had been kidnapped, raped, etc., etc.

When Michael Harvey was arrested, he said she died of an overdose and he got scared and ran.

Despite confirmation from the autopsy, the prosecutors haven't dropped the charges, instead suggest that it still could have been murder if Harvey forced the drugs on her.

Its hard to let a bad case go, especially when it's high profile. Of course, in the end, the State will offer a sweatheart deal, to which Harvey will have no choice but to plead guilty, to save a little face...
