Forensic Toxicology and death investigation. Ex-Coroner did a shabby job.

Another example of the effects of inconsistent and non-standardized management of questionable deaths  in the US. Most coroners are not trained medical professionals.

“Kane County Coroner changes cause of death from overdose to undetermined.”

Events of note: the prior coroner was indicted for “missing” personal effects.

“In this case, no autopsy was performed to see the possibility of a natural event,” Russell [ newly elected in 2012] said in a press release. “The cause of death was determined at that time to be polypharmacy [multiple drugs], and the manner was accidental. After I reviewed the toxicology report, my forensic pathologist and I agreed the determination was incorrect.”
