NRA should pay for all autopsy' in the hole country. If We believe in the blasferml of saying " trusting in God", when it is guns and killings and preachers, who makes God's seeds for sale in a greedy capitalism, that is destroying, my sweet America. .Thank you for Your enlightening & amusing show. May our Lord bless you & yours ;)

Terrifying episode. Almost unbelievable. I was born in a third world country, and the way this is handled there is different. In natural deaths medical doctors sign the death certificate after external examination of the body and medical records, if there is indication of violence involved (homicide, suicide, car accident, poisoning, unknown origin) there is a report filed by authorities and autopsy is mandated before the family can get the body for burial or cremation. In big cities the autopsy is performed in by pathologists, and in rural areas it is performed in a section of the public cementery, by one of the medical doctors in town who works for the public hospital. Usually that responsibility is rotated or assigned to the newest one in the mandatory Social Service Year. And because it is expected from them all the MD's, they had spent at least six months from the whole career devoted to what is called Medicina Legal, learning the procedures and skills to determine how a person died.

I live in Georgia and can confirm the coroner is elected. I was shocked when I first learned this. I was far more shocked when I learned that a close family member had actually been a coroner in the past, despite a complete lack of medical training. They're family, but... they really shouldn't have been doing something like that. They've portrayed it as not much more than being someone who had to declare a person dead and what was to be done. Granted, they also had to follow rules about what happened to the body, especially concerning when an autopsy must be performed. They say that they'd been hounded by families wanting the remains of a loved one returned immediately that were enraged when told that the situation required, by nature of the scenario, an autopsy. I'd like to think they did well in the position, but you can't substitute proper training...

When my little brother died, we knew why- he died in the throes of a status grande mal seizure. But as he was on several experimental meds and his brain damage was the result of a malpractice, he had to have a full autopsy. We got his remains less than 2 weeks later, in time for the funeral, but it was *18 MONTHS* before the autopsy results were released. After hearing the woman’s story of struggling due to not getting life insurance funds in a timely fashion, I wonder if my parents also had to wait and thus pay for those massive hospital bills on their own- I’m betting they did.

Disappointing economics. Life expectancy is 70+ years. We're looking at $200-$300 per capita over a normal lifetime, to investigate a small fractions of deaths. Not huge, but not insignificant, either.

i think in the American south the system is basically a trailer with a floor-drain in it. Whenever they get a body the Sherif/mayor/treasurer/beet farmer/coroner just goes in there and pins a post-it note to the body that says "some nigger did it".

In high school, I had a classmate whose dad was the state medical examiner (New Hampshire). He mentioned that people were upset that he was the highest paid state employee (as opposed to a college football coach, I guess). His reply was that in his role, he was a medical doctor, lawyer, and expert witness rolled into one.

as a well timed related story, apparently a coroners office was shut down after the workers there were found to be using the bodies for arts and crafts ala human centipede or dr. frankenstein. they described finding things like "a metal bucket filled with male genitals" or "multiple women's faces sewn onto one head" so yeah, if your coroners office seems too cheap to be true, it probably is.

Does anyone else find John Oliver painfully unfunny and self congratulatory? I put up with him in these videos because the subject matter is always so interesting. But they would actually be better without the awkward jokes and forced banter, and just delivered as straight editorial pieces. I respect his work ethic and hustle to get his own mainstream US talk show but he really reminds me of someone who got there on grit and determination and not comedic talent. He is very cringe worthy. Just wondered how everyone else feels about him. Plus, I am british if that counts for anything, haha

This Georgia coroner has a side job of paranormal investigator. She wrongly blamed a death on natural causes when there was blood found everywhere in the apartment of a dead man.

I think the fundamental problem with forensic pathologist shortage is that to get into medical school, you have to be able to say, "I love working with people, I want to take care of their health and care about people's well being. I want to save lives! Hurray healthcare!" It's kind of the opposite job description of a forensic pathologist. Also, after getting your undergraduate degree, you need to finish 4 years of med school with $300k+ debt, 4-5 years of residency (starting salary is usually $50k) then you finally get to work at your dream median salary of $176k... Or you could be a pediatrician or family doctor for only 3 years of residency for the same amount of base salary. It would seems like 1-2 years isn't much. But it is. When you know what it's like to be a resident who is immensely overworked and underpaid. Especially after you've been in school for as long as you have and the interest is piling up on that $300k principle. I would suggest state schools to make a completely new degree. Go the anatomy route, get a master's or PhD. Get education paid for. There will probably be more people who can actually make it through without having to deal with the cut throat process of getting into medical school and trying to compete with the students trying to neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, interventional radiologists and dermatologists. And without all the debt associated with med school. Sincerely, Medical student
