Fargo police say no charges will be filed and the case is closed.
FARGO — Eric Nerpel, 51, was found unconscious in the parking lot outside Motel 6 on Aug. 4.
The Fargo Police Department has said after reviewing surveillance video, they saw Nerpel fighting with another man just minutes before 911 was called for a medical emergency.
After a four-month investigation, the medical examiner determined that Nerpel died from a meth overdose and not from injuries he sustained in the fight.
Nerpel's death was ruled an accident. Police say no charges will be filed and that the case is closed.
