    The Maryland’s Attorney General’s Office said Friday it believes there should be a review of “in custody” death reports produced by the state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner during the tenure of Dr. David Fowler, nine days after Fowler testified that an ex-Minneapolis police officer was not responsible for the death of George Floyd in police custody. The announcement came less than 24 hours after the attorney general’s office received a letter from the former medical examiner of Washington, D.C., Roger A. Mitchell, signed by 431 doctors from around the country, saying Fowler’s testimony and conclusions were so far...

    Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County medical examiner, took the stand at the murder trial of former Officer Derek Chauvin for pressing his knee on or close to Floyd’s neck. Baker concluded last year that Floyd died from cardiopulmonary arrest — that is, his heart stopped. The chief county medical examiner who ruled George Floyd’s death a homicide testified Friday that Floyd’s heart gave out due to heart disease, hypertension, drugs, and stress. He also said that the stress was caused by the way the police held him down. When Baker was asked how police “subdual, restraint and neck compression”...

    What Happened to Officer Brian Sicknick?No one should discount the idea that Democrats and the news media would intentionally promote a totally fabricated story to destroy Donald Trump and vilify his supporters.The claim is so pervasive as not to be questioned: Five people died as a result of the January 6 “insurrection” at the Capitol building, killed by blood-thirsty Trump voters at the president’s behest, out for revenge over a stolen election.Even though only one death—the shooting of Ashli Babbitt by a still-unidentified police officer—is provable by video evidence, the other fatalities nonetheless are accepted as an article of faith...

    Medical Examiner Rules Jeffrey Epstein Death Was Suicide by Hanging © Jane Rosenberg 23:21 16.08.2019(updated 23:41 16.08.2019) The New York Medical Examiner's Office released its official autopsy report on financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein on Friday, finding that he died from suicide by hanging.

However, Friday's official report concluded the bones were broken by Epstein kneeling...

    The doctor who performed Trayvon Martin's autopsy says he has changed his opinion in recent weeks on two matters related to the teen's death.

The associate medical examiner said last November that he believed Martin was alive one to three minutes. But he testified Friday it was one to 10 minutes. He also said Friday that marijuana could have affected Martin physically or mentally, even...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police and medical examiners who thought a man died of natural causes changed their minds after funeral-home workers found bullet holes in his head. The Kansas City Star reported Thursday that three bullet wounds — two of them in Anthony Crockett's head — were noticed after the man's body was embalmed Friday. The funeral home returned the 49-year-old Kansas City man's body to the Jackson County medical examiner's office, and police counted the death as a homicide.

    The audience at Century 16 came to see Timothy Treadwell, the "Grizzly Man" subject who dared danger by getting so close to brown bears he could pet them. But a half-hour in, the fall blockbuster cuts to a new character, no less dramatic. Cue Dr. Franc Fallico, the unexpected scene-stealer. Off screen, Fallico is a clean-pressed man who does the state's dirty work. He's Alaska's chief medical examiner, which means he spends his days performing autopsies on people killed in suspected homicides, accidents or by sudden illness. In fall 2003, Fallico performed the autopsies of Treadwell and girlfriend Amie Huguenard...

    SEATTLE -- More grieving families stepped forward on Friday with accusations that the King County Medical Examiner's Office sold brains for profit without getting consent. Thursday night, KIRO Team 7 Investigators first exposed how King County shipped about 180 brains to a private research facility out of state. In return, it got more than $1 million. Investigative Reporter Chris Halsne has discovered information about missing consent forms and at least one brain that should never have been harvested. For privacy reasons, we'll call this case 98-1218. That's the label King County slapped on the file of a dead man before...
