Coroner's Office

The Coroner investigates all sudden, natural and violent deaths in the County, which appear to be accidental, homicidal or suicidal to determine the cause and manner of death.

At his discretion, he may summon a jury composed of six persons of legal age and conduct an inquest into the cause and manner of death. The purpose of the inquest is to present pertinent information concerning the victim’s death in order for the jury to arrive at a cause and manner of death. The cause of the death is often readily apparent and obvious based on the facts, circumstances, medical evidence and in some cases toxicology and autopsy results. The real essence of the juror’s responsibility is to establish the manner of death (suicide, homicide, accident, natural or undetermined.)

When a vacancy occurs in the Office of the Sheriff, the Coroner assumes the office temporarily until the vacancy is filled by appointment or election.
