Are all Coroner records available to the public?
No. The Coroner Report of Investigation, Autopsy, and Toxicology Reports are not public record. These reports contain information that is protected by Federal and State Laws.

The Coroner Dockets are the only records that are made available to the public. State law requires that ONLY the following information be made available for public view:

Name of the decedent, age of the decedent, cause and manner of death, date and time of death, Coroner's name and seal.
