During autopsies, coroners inspect the body of a deceased person to identify marks or other empirical evidence that indicates how he or she died. Other specific job duties include:

  • Completing death certificates
  • Identifying human remains
  • Notifying next of kin
  • Operating crime scene equipment
  • Supervising the transportation of corpses
  • Visiting death scenes


The key responsibility of a coroner or medical examiner is to determine the manner and cause of deaths, often by performing autopsies.
