Clayton County considering creating medical examiner’s office


“The scope of services is extensive,” Roberts said, explaining that the medical examiner’s duties would include responding to fatal accidents, determining cause of death, signing death certificates and contacting families.

The increased costs would likely force Clayton to amend its 2021 fiscal budget sometime in the next six months, Turner said. That includes knowing the size of the staff and whether the county will need to build a new facility.

During the work session discussion, the leaders seemed to veto using a private service after failing to find one that would collect and store bodies in an extended contract. And they were less enthused about creating a coroner’s post because it would require legislative action, and because of the time it would take to hold an election.

Clayton County District Attorney Tasha Mosley said creating a medical examiner’s office is the best choice. Contracting the operations to different services could be a nightmare for prosecutors, especially if a body in a criminal matter is touched by several entities before it is examined, including those who collect it, transport it and store it.

“That’s just a defense attorney’s field day,” she said. “The more people that touch it, the more things that they’ll say we did wrong.”

As a reporter, Ben is interested in how governments work — and the people/structures that make governments fail. Don't assume he knows something and is choosing not to report on it, instead send him an email. Ben could use your help making sense of this confusing world, and without your help will default to a mix of seeking context and eating too many boiled peanuts. Ben's strongest opinions revolve around food, comedy and music.

Nash has left office after having announced earlier this year that she would not be running for re-election.nNash became chairman of the commission after a 27-year career with the county.nShe started her tenure with a simple statement: “I’m going to do the right thing”.n“When she inherited the county, it was a nightmare,” said Nicole Love Hendrickson, who will take over Nash’s job in January.nNash says about her legacy: “The same thing I’ve been working on all along.” That is, transportation, water infrastructure, formalizing county processes and Gwinnett’s financial well-being.nSome of that can be seen in major actions the board took this year, from work to put a transit referendum on .nthe ballot (it ultimately failed by 1,013 votes out of nearly 400,000 cast) to the decision to sell bonds for water and sewer improvements.nFor her part, Nash said there are many things she’ll miss about serving, but she’s content with her decision to step away"},"credits":{},"taxonomy":{"tags":[{"text":"rct-video"},{"text":"rct-video-an"}],"primary_site":{"type":"site","_id":"/life","version":"0.5.8","name":"Life","path":"/life","primary":true},"sites":[{"type":"site","_id":"/life","version":"0.5.8","name":"Life","path":"/life","primary":true}],"primary_section":{"type":"section","_id":"/life","_website":"ajc","version":"0.6.0","name":"Life","path":"/life","primary":true},"sections":[{"type":"section","_id":"/life","_website":"ajc","version":"0.6.0","name":"Life","path":"/life","primary":true}],"seo_keywords":["rct-video","rct-video-an"]},"promo_items":{"basic":{"type":"image","version":"0.5.8","credits":{},"url":"https://d1fegwn2wjh0cs.cloudfront.net/12-28-2020/t_0c7cd6c0d8a54d76b389f2aca309a0cd_name_75add7afd01644d1bbfdfa3be580ad44.jpg"}},"related_content":{"redirect":[],"basic":[]},"planning":{"scheduling":{}},"revision":{"published":true},"syndication":{"search":false},"source":{"source_id":"bafe85b6aaaf64739ab28a1e2b1d3d641","system":"Wibbitz
