MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — An investigation by the Idaho State Police has found no criminal wrongdoing by a law enforcement agency that named a man as its most wanted person on its Facebook page before he committed suicide.
State police investigators released a preliminary report on Friday regarding the Latah County Sheriff’s Office’s treatment of a 19-year-old Andrew Cain of Pullman, Wash.
Sheriff Wayne Rausch requested the review after members of Cain’s family claimed he was targeted in June as the department’s most wanted person.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News (http://bit.ly/1aEJZUH ) says Idaho State Police detectives found no criminal acts were committed in the way the sheriff’s office communicated.
Cain’s sister has said online harassment via the page contributed to her brother’s death on June 19.
