FARGO -- Police and prosecutors say they've run out of clues in the death of a Fargo man who was assaulted last summer.

Ronald Hammersmith was attacked while walking home from downtown Fargo in the early morning hours on July 26. He died a few days later.

Police identified a suspect and forwarded the case to Cass County State's Attorney Birch Burdick. But Burdick says he doesn't have enough evidence to bring the case to trial.

Fargo Police Chief Keith Ternes (TURN'-us) says he's frustrated and disappointed that the case remains unsolved, but he understands why prosecutors have not filed charges.

The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead and the Herald are Forum Communications Co. newspapers.
