On Elected Coroners


Apparently, the coroner's office in New Orleans operates like the Marion Co. Coroner's Office. Marion Co. Prosecutor Carl Brizzi's Office was presented with evidence a few years ago about efforts to unlawfully procure and sell body parts from decedents' bodies autopsied by the office. A deputy coroner, who was not a doctor, was once illegally caught removing corneas from a decedent a few years ago in the Marion Co. Coroner's Office. Brizzi's office, of course, buried the investigation and an investigation into the theft of decedents' property while in the custody of the Coroner's Office just like every other public corruption case that has occurred on his watch. Enjoy viewing this campaign ad now running New Orleans.

Remember Brizzi running down to the Coroner's office in full TV makeup when he knew the news teams would be there?

Can you dig that out again for us to revisit? It gives us a glimpse into behavior that could be described as one of the traits of a sociopath.

By the way, the vast majority of psychologists agree that little can be done to treat the sociopath.

It would be great if there was a study about which county coroners have performed more admirably, those elected, or those appointed.
