Are all Coroner records available to the public?

No. The Coroner's Investigative Report, Autopsy and Toxicology Reports are not public records. These reports contain information that is protected by Federal and State Laws.

The View of Body (cause and manner of all deaths) are the only records that are made available to the public. State Law requires that only the following information be made available for public view: 

  • Name of the decedent
  • Cause and manner of death
  • Age of the decedent
  • Date and time of death
  • Coroner's Name and Seal
