Answers to a Tragedy

Authority Coroners Service

After Janet’s brother was unexpectedly found deceased in his apartment, the Coroners Service commissioned a toxicology report to determine the
probable cause of death.

In the months that followed, Janet left two phone messages with the Coroners Service. What was the result?

After her messages went unreturned, Janet called us. It had now been six months since her brother died and she was anxious to know what had occurred.

As a result of our inquiry, the Coroners Service committed to check the status of the toxicology report and promptly follow up with Janet.

When we called Janet a couple days later she had already spoken with the Coroners Service. She had the information she needed to understand her brother’s tragic circumstance and said the resolution the answer brought her was comforting.
