What if I do want an autopsy performed and the Chief Coroner decides not to perform an autopsy?

Category: FAQ

If the Chief Coroner declines to do an autopsy, the deceased individual’s legal next-of-kin can privately hire a pathologist to perform an autopsy. The associated cost ranges from approximately $2000.00 to $5000.00 and is the responsibility of the legal next-of-kin. Pathologists available for private hire, to perform an autopsy, can be found on the internet, by contacting other County Coroner Offices, or by calling 1-800-AUTOPSY.
