When will my loved one’s body be released by the Office of the Coroner?

Category: FAQ

In most circumstances, your loved one’s body is available for release to a mortuary in 2-4 days after his/her death. The Office of the Coroner will NOT release your loved one’s body until the legal next-of-kin has authorized which mortuary to release the body to. An authorization form is signed by the legal next-of-kin at the mortuary that the legal next-of-kin has selected.
