The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Hampshire found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing involving the store which sold a gun to the suspected Craigslist killer Philip Markoff, the Boston Globe reported.

Federal prosecutors had explored the possibility of filing criminal charges against the State Line Gun Shop in Mason, N.H., which sold the gun to  Markoff, a medical student, who used fake identification of someone who supposedly looked like him, the Globe reported.

Markoff, who committed suicide Sunday while in prison awaiting trial for the killing of Julissa Brisman, a masseuse, who he met through Craigslist.

“This office is not looking into this issue,” Donald Feith, an assistant US attorney in New Hampshire told the Globe.

Brisman’s family has been calling for federal authorities to investigate the gun dealer for allegedly not confirming Markoff’s identification.
