County Attorney's Office

The County Attorney serves as coroner, investigating all deaths occurring outside the presence of a physician and authorizes autopsies, if necessary, to determine cause and manner of death. 

Fatal motor vehicle accidents may prompt an autopsy when the County Attorney determines that a driver may have committed a traffic or criminal law violation thought to be a substantial factor in causing a death.
