Mass. Medical Examiners Prolonging Agony

Families facing an unexplainable death of a loved one sign up for a prolonged agony if they ask for an autopsy.

It will be an entire year, on Father’s Day, for my friends who still do not know why their 20-year-old son died. It is unconscionable for a civil service to delay providing a report that should be deliverable under 90 days according to the national standard set by the Association of Medical Examiners.

The State should protect the rights and welfare of vulnerable families who already face tragedies by disbanding the ineffective bureaucracy of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Senator Brownsberger will consider comments from affected families or interested people in response to this post.
