BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation launched an investigation into a local police department after a suicide incident on June 30 and found that no officers will be charged.
Marion Cape took his own life while the Oak Island Police Department was serving a warrant at his house this summer because he allegedly committed various crimes of a sexual nature, according to a news release from District Attorney Jon David.
Detectives went to his residence at 322 N.E. 39th Street. During the course of the interview, Cape reportedly made a number of incriminating statements. At some point in the evening, Cape asked to use the bathroom. He then barricaded himself inside the room, retrieved a shot-gun and fatally shot himself.
