General Information

The office continues to grow and change. We continually strive to serve this County and its resident to the best of our ability. Our days are kept busy with scheduling autopsies, approving cremations, talking to the police departments, physicians, hospital staff, funeral homes, and insurance companies.

Cremation as an alternative means of disposition continues to be a choice many families and individuals request. Cremation permits must be approved by the Medical Examiner, a permit typed and a $10.00 fee collected.

We continue to enjoy a productive and cooperative relationship with the Sheriff's Department, Michigan State Police, and the other Law Enforcement jurisdictions in Tuscola County. We have provided training to 5 retired public service personnel in order to fulfill the role of Medical Examiner Scene Investigators (MESIs). We appreciate their dedication to this program.
