A Medical Examiner Report is completed for all jurisdictional cases and summarizes the circumstances surrounding the death, medical and social histories, and forensic examination findings. The Medical Examiner Report may contain details about medical procedures, injuries, and medical findings which may be upsetting for some next of kin.
Copies of the report(s) are available upon completion of the case. Completion time will vary depending on the complexity, circumstances, and need for additional testing or investigation required for each individual case. The OME strives to complete 90% of our cases within 90 days.
For updates on cause and manner of death and availability of the report, you can visit the Case Status feature on our website. You may also request a report on the website by clicking here.
Alternatively, you may contact Administrative Support Services at (602) 506-3322 to request a copy of the report. There is no fee to obtain a copy of the report if you are legal next of kin or if you request an electronic report.
