The Coroner is an elected official governed by Colorado Revised Statutes to establish the cause and manner of deaths that fall within their jurisdiction. It is a common misconception that this responsibility lies with law enforcement but it is actually the responsibility of the Coroner.
IF THERE HAS BEEN A DEATH AND YOU ARE UNSURE WHETHER OR NOT THE CORONER SHOULD BE NOTIFIED, DIAL 911 AND REPORT TO AUTHORITIES IMMEDIATELY.
The investigation of a death by the Coroner’s Office is an extremely important function as it is done by an independent agency that does not work for the law enforcement agency, the physician, the nursing home, the hospital, the prosecution or the defense, but works on the behalf of the deceased to obtain the truth about their death.
