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.
