    All deaths, other than in a hospital or hospice setting are treated as a crime scene until it is determined to be natural causes. Typically when the deceased doctor states they will sign a death certificate. If it appears suspicious, the ME will be notified and it will be treated as a crime. 14 hours makes it seem there was some suspicion or they could not get a doctor to sign a death certificate...which is common for many that do not have a family doctor they go to regularly.

    Forgot to say: sorry to family and friends for their loss...

    Someone told me recently that if someone dies alone, the police have to treat it like a crime until they prove it otherwise. This happened when his Mother died of a heart attack in her home (alone) several years ago.

    So the body is being investigated. Those UNC grads working at WRAL are still churning out ill-thought headlines.

    Prayers for the Diehl family.

    It was an investigation as neighbors and those close with the family were questioned. Police were at the residence for over 14 hours

    sounds like someone passed away at home; why on earth would WRAL post it as an "investigation" of a "body"? How cold and clinical. Sorry for the loss of someone's loved one.

    Why the news feel they need to post the exact address is beyond me. Let all the criminals know that there is a chance the house is unoccupied - or will be during visitation/funeral.

    I'm puzzled as to why you would give the EXACT address - North Ridge CC would have been enough at this point of the investigation. Just my opinion.
