Fireworks probe could lead to charges in death of Fargo man
FARGO - The investigation into how Jesse Burley obtained the strictly regulated fireworks that killed him July 4 could possibly lead to criminal charges.
"Would it be nice? Yes," Fargo police Lt. Joel Vettel said of the prospect of a prosecution in connection with Burley's death. "Could you imagine if this had gone off in a building? Who knows what would have happened."
Vettel said the investigation could also draw licensing penalties if there's no criminal case to be made.
