Boone carbon monoxide investigation
BOONE, N.C. -

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services says there were no mistakes by state employees in the investigation of carbon monoxide deaths in a Boone hotel.

We're told a state agency spokesman said the department's involvement in the investigation was limited to processing specimens in the lab.

Officials took about six weeks to obtain toxicology tests results for a couple who died in a room in the hotel.

State officials say there were not told the information was needed urgently.
