The officers, who were not named, had responded to a report of a domestic dispute.After examining the findings of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and a medical examiner’s report, Yates said the officers’ actions were justified and the case was closed.Norris’ autopsy showed a high level of alcohol and the presence of anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs in toxicology results, the statement said.
