Summary
In over 1,300 counties across America, elected coroners, many with no medical or scientific background, are in charge of death investigations. Nationwide there is a severe shortage of competent forensic pathologists to do autopsies. The rate of autopsies -- the gold standard of death investigation--has plummeted over decades. As a result, not only do murders go free and innocent people go to jail, but the crisis in death investigation in America is also a threat to public health
