==Coroner's Records==
 +
A coroner is a government or public official who is in charge of investigating any deaths by inquest that occur under unusual circumstances or appear to be from unnatural causes. If the coroner has questions about the death, they can order an autopsy to be performed and hold an inquest if the autopsy reveals inconsistencies to a natural death.<br>
 +
 
 +
Coroner's reports can include information about the deceased and their circumstances of their death including cause of death.<br>
 +
 
 +
To find coroner's records, go to the jurisdiction covering the location the death took place. Some corner's reports have been digitized and are available online.<br>
