How long before my loved one is released and I get results?
After the autopsy is complete, the body will be released to the funeral home that the family has chosen. Depending on what time of day the death occurred, the autopsy may occur the same or next day. The autopsy results may take six to ten weeks to come back depending on the extent of the toxicology report, if one was necessary. The autopsy results come to the coroner’s office. In Greene County, one copy of the autopsy report is provided to each family. Additional copies may be purchased for a minimal cost.
