Forty-year-old Jamie Hart filed a lawsuit against the "Better Business Bureau" in 2010, claiming the organization targeted him because he complained that the watchdog group wasn't’ treating him fairly. In the lawsuit, Hart asked for at least $500,000. The BBB denied any wrongdoing and the suit was dismissed a few months later.
Monday night, KSDK-TV decided to pull the "Five on Your Side" investigative story.
Investigators initially found no signs of foul play and the medical examiner said Hart did not suffer a heart attack. Toxicology tests are pending.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports station officials sent an e-mail to KSDK employees, that provided contact information for grief counselors.
