Why is the Coroner involved?
By state law, the Coroner is required to investigate all deaths not attended by a physician and any deaths occurring within 24 hours of admission to a hospital. The Coroner determines circumstances, manner, and cause of death. The Coroner is an independent investigator of deaths whether it be natural, accidental, suicide, or of a criminal nature.
