Private Autopsies

We will perform private autopsies for families who have questions following the death of a family member. We will not, however, perform a private autopsy if the death occurred in a county for which our office serves as the Medical Examiner and the death was, or should have been, investigated by our office. If a private autopsy is requested, and the death was not or should not have been under the jurisdiction of the medical examiner, contact our office at 269.337.6173.

In addition to private autopsies, our office is also able to perform neuropathological examinations at the request of decedent families. Please call our office for additional information, including cost and consent for examination.
