CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Florida police say they've closed an investigation into the suspicious death of the third husband of a Georgia grandmother with five dead husbands.

Patricia Dally of the Monroe County, Fla. Sheriff's Office said Wednesday the case is too old and the investigation would cost too
much money to continue. But documents obtained by The Associated
Press reveal new questions about the case.

Nelos Sills' death was ruled a suicide in 1965, when he was married to Betty Neumar. The 76-year-old Neumar is facing charges in North Carolina in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry. Florida opened its investigation in June after Neumar's arrest in North Carolina.

While Florida investigators discovered that no autopsy was performed, Navy records show Sills may have been shot twice -- not once like Neumar told police.
