About Us

The Westmoreland County Coroner's Office conducts investigations to determine the cause and manner of any death that falls into their jurisdiction.  This includes determining if there is sufficient reason to believe any such death may have resulted from criminal acts or criminal neglect of persons other than the deceased.

Our staff is made up of highly trained and educated medicolegal death investigators, along with experts in forensic pathology, forensic odontology, and forensic anthropology.

The office strives to provide professional death investigations, work cooperatively with all agencies involved, and maintain a high degree of respect for the deceased, along with their grieving families.
