TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - After an official case review of the August 30 hyperthermia death of a two and a half year old, the conclusion was made that the incident was not a criminal act.
“Each and every case must be reviewed based on the individual facts of that incident,” said Vigo County Prosecutor, Terry Modesitt. “In regards to Hunter Harrison, my review of the facts and law has determined there are no appropriate criminal charges within the laws of Indiana to be filed related to this incident.”
The official case review included efforts by technicians of the Terre Haute Police Department, case workers with the Indiana Department of Child Services in Vigo and Clay Counties, eye witness reports (including the father) and the autopsy performed by the Vigo County Coroner.
Officials state that the approach to this case was that if a crime had been committed that could have been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, a charge or charges would have been filed.
