SOUTH OGDEN (AP) — A judge has dismissed a wrongful-death lawsuit that said South Ogden police failed to properly respond to a 911 call.
Nancee Draney filed the suit in 2nd District Court in 2007, about 18 months after her son, daughter-in-law and grandson were found dead in their apartment.
Court records say Draney's son, Mark Dagnillo, called 911 in 2005 and told a dispatcher that medical assistance was needed. When police arrived, no one answered the door and they left.
Two weeks later, an apartment complex employee found the family members dead. Police determined that Dagnillo shot his wife, then himself.
Medical examiners couldn't determine how the couple's infant son died or whether he was alive when the officers knocked on the door.
Judge Pamela Heffernan dismissed the case Tuesday because of a lack of activity.
