“Birth and death are the only two universal human experiences.”
The Coroner is an elected countywide official serving for a four-year term. The Coroner's office is a law enforcement agency, which, as part of the system of checks and balances, investigates the cause and manner of deaths that occur in the county.
The Coroner's jurisdiction is determined by where the death actually occurs, not where a particular incident/accident happened that might have caused the death. An incident/accident may occur in one county, but if the victim is transported to a facility in another county and pronounced deceased, the jurisdiction lies where the actual pronouncement of death occurs.
