WSOC TV News will report that autopsy results do not indicate a violent death in the Valerie Hamilton case.
According to Charlotte's News Channel 14 Harvey told reporters outside the courtroom that he was innocent and that the 23-year-old daughter of Concord Police Chief Merl Hamilton overdosed in her sleep.
"I didn't do it," Harvey said. "She OD'd in her sleep. Did you hear that? She OD'd in her sleep."
Cedar Posts has again received emails alleging Valerie Hamilton's party lifestyle. None however indicate her involvement in hard core drugs like the heroin that Harvey was addicted to.
This might explain why sexual assault and kidnapping charges were not initially brought.
Detectives are still waiting for results from toxicology tests and results of the sexual assault examination kit.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg homicide detectives have told Charlotte media outlet that they have spoken with several witnesses who reported seeing Hamilton with Harvey at the Thomas Street Tavern Wednesday night.
According to WCNC "Witnesses told police that Hamilton appeared to need medical attention and some of those witnesses say they approached Harvey, telling him to take Hamilton to a medical professional".
Still so many questions remain; how did Valerie Hamilton die?, was her death due to a sexual assault?, what happened to her 2008 DWI arrest?, was there a cover up in order to protect Concord's Chief of Police?, or was it just professional courtesy?, why was a 3 time loser like Harvey out on Charlotte's streets?
