Coroner's Office

The Coroner's Office is primarily concerned with the death of a person having no attending physician. This may come under the heading of "natural death," "accidental death," or "suicide." Autopsies are performed by the local medical examiners (pathologists) appointed by the State of Georgia at the Coroner's request. Inquests are held where there is a need in the Coroner's opinion. There are approximately 80 investigations carried out each year.
