Coroner's Office

For 900 years, it has been the function of the coroner to monitor the honesty and integrity of other public officials in the English-speaking world. The modern coroner performs the same function, but in the narrower area of death investigation. The death of any human being is too important to be left merely to the police, the prosecutors, the judges, and the physicians. In Indiana, we elect a public official to supervise the process of determining the cause of death. The Indiana coroner is the heir to the tradition going back nine centuries to the officials who represented the interests of the king. They were called coroners because they represented the crown.
