Just In: Crime Ruled Out in NCL Woman Overboard Case
(8:20 p.m. EDT) -- The F.B.I. and authorities from Bermuda have concluded their investigation onboard Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Dawn and have left the ship, according to a statement from the cruise line.

The ship, which docked Wednesday morning at King's Wharf on a scheduled Bermuda cruise from New York, was made available to the authorities for the past two days to conduct interviews and to examine the sealed room to which Mindy Jordan had been assigned. Jordan fell overboard shortly after setting sail from New York on Sunday evening and is presumed dead.

According to the statement, F.B.I. spokesperson Jim Margolin has confirmed that after the witness interviews and review of the ship's surveillance videos, they do not believe that a crime has been committed.

Louise Horton, the victim's mother, has declined Norwegian Cruise Line's offer to fly her and other family members to Bermuda to review the surveillance footage.

Jorge Caputo, Jordan's fiance, left the ship at approximately 1 p.m. today after extensive interviews with the authorities.

Norwegian Dawn is expected to depart Bermuda tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. as scheduled.
