AMARILLO, TEXAS - The Texas Medical Board has decided not to take disciplinary action against a former High Plains medical examiner. The person who filed the original complaint against Doctor Paul Shrode says he's told the medical board has concluded their investigation and found no wrong doing.

This comes after one woman walked free of murder charges and another person had their murder sentence reduced because Shorde's evidence was ruled "not scientifically supported."

Here's what the complainant says the board sent him explaining their decision:

"The investigation has been dismissed because the Board determined that there was insufficient evidence to prove that any violations of Medical Practice Act occurred. Specifically, the Board found there was sufficient proof that Dr. Shrode was qualified for the position of medical examiner."
