Coroner

Responsibilities

As a licensed physician, the Fulton County Coroner has broad authority to investigate causes of death resulting from crimes or violent acts, suicide, or any death of a suspicious nature. In fatal automobile crashes, the Coroner determines the blood alcohol content of those deceased.

The Coroner works closely with law enforcement agencies and the prosecuting attorney in preparing cases for trial. The Coroner performs autopsies, toxicology tests, and testifies as an expert witness in court on causes of death.
