District Attorney: Eppler case is still open

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty District Attorney insists the investigation into the 2011 death of a Marine's wife remains open, despite a published report to the contrary.

Natalie Eppler was shot in the head in her West Gordon Avenue home in February 2011.

Her husband Sgt. James Eppler was initially charged with murder but the charges were later dropped when the GBI ruled the death a suicide.

Natalie Eppler's parents don't believe their daughter committed suicide and the D-A says the case is still active.

"We are keeping the case open for any additional information and to use any new forensic techniques that may help us answer any unanswered questions, but were not at the point where we are ready to file a case because the investigation is ongoing," said Greg Edwards.

"A young vibrant 22 year old woman with her whole life ahead of her. She was going to school, wanted to get her bachelor's degree. I want to know what happened that night." said Rebecca Holland, mother.

Greg Edwards says there are no limitations of time in which the state could bring charges if the investigation shows they are warranted.
