The medical investigators conduct the initial phase of the investigation of each death reported to MCCO. Most of the vital information-gathering and record keeping functions required for death investigations are performed by our medical
investigators. Under the supervision of the Coroner, forensic pathologist and/or chief medical investigator, the medical investigators coordinate their findings with autopsy and laboratories throughout the entire investigative process Our investigators are all affiliated with the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators. Montgomery County is the only PA county where the physicians are all board-certified forensic pathologists.
