Laura Putnam's family is dropping the wrongful death lawsuit filed against Berkley and Vincent Dawson.
The 23-year-old Texas Tech graduate was killed in May of last year in a boating accident on Lake LBJ, near Austin. The Dawson brothers own the boat that allegedly caused the fatal crash.
Putnam's family dropped the lawsuit after investigators learned that the boat was taken without the Dawson brother's permission. Police suspect Robert Corrigan III was driving the boat. He's charged with failure to stop and render aid. His trial is scheduled to start this fall.
