cases

Autopsies and examinations are performed Monday-Friday and the occasional Saturday depending on case load.  Death certificates are initiated by the Medical Examiner’s Office, through the Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS) and forwarded electronically to the funeral home for completion.  Every case differs in complexity. Autopsy reports may not be available until all investigations and testing have been completed. Turnaround times for toxicology testing can take up to 90 days.  Once a report becomes available investigators and the medical examiners are readily available to speak with the family members to answer any questions they may have.
