    Ewww.

    How'd this guy make it all the way to coroner? There were certainly red flags in his background, JMO.
    If nothing else, he lacks the respect necessary for such a position. Move on man, you're done.

    I hope he hasn't compromised prior death determinations. Creep.

    In some places it's not difficult to become the coroner, even veterinarians get the job at times.

    A lengthier look at this macabre tale from the Newport Plain Talk:

    Coroner barred from crime scenes, plans resignation

    An article from last month, same source, with copy of injunction:

    Judge approves injunction against county coroner Jarnigan

    The coroner system needs to be done away with. Back in the day, it was usually just the guy with the biggest or only funeral home in town. Forensics have come too far for anyone except a medical examiner to view the body/scene and complete an autopsy, order the appropriate lab work.
