Why is a body brought to the coroner’s office?
The remains of the deceased are brought to the coroner’s office because Ohio Law requires that the coroner investigate the death of a person who has died from criminal violence, by accident, suicide, suddenly, when unattended by a physician for a long period of time or in any unusual
manner. A body may also be brought to the coroner’s office because the identity of the deceased or the next of kin may be unknown.
