When will the Medical Examiner's Report be available, and how can I obtain a copy?

It typically takes about three months for the Medical Examiner's Report to be completed. The Medical Examiner’s Office does not release a report until all information has been gathered from third parties, testing has been performed, and the final evaluation written.

When the Medical Examiner's Report is complete, it is available under the Open Records Act. A written request may be emailed, mailed or faxed to the Medical Examiner’s Office. Please include the name of the decedent, date of death, the requestor’s name, address, and phone number.
