The New York Times reports that the Justice Department is taking steps to close the investigation and clear Wilson of any wrongdoing.
Federal prosecutors have begun work on a legal memo recommending no civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, law enforcement officials said.
That would close the case in the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. An investigation by the F.B.I., which is complete, found no evidence to support the charges against the officer, the officials said.
If you recall, authorities in Ferguson concluded their investigation in November and recommended no charges. A grand jury declined to indict Wilson, a 6-year-veteran on the force. The Justice Department is expected to release a report explaining their decision.
