  • Want To Murder Someone? Pennsylvania’s About To Make It Easier

    09/17/2014 9:06:21 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 11 replies
    The Daily Caller ^ | 9-17-2014 | Dick Teresi
    Pennsylvania legislators are poised to pass into law an organ-transplant-donation bill that will make it easier for murderers to avoid detection and prosecution. Two bills, almost identical, Senate Bill 850 (SB 850) and House Bill 30 (HB 30), according to its many bipartisan sponsors, will greatly increase the number of organ donors. There are currently 121,000 people on the national waitlist for organ transplants, and laws to increase the organ supply are perennially popular in many states. Those opposing such laws are commonly accused of condemning to death people on the waitlist. Law enforcement officials, however, are taking exception to...

    Lt. Boyd said Williams was found in his bedroom “clothed, in a seated position, unresponsive with a belt secured around his neck.” There were also several cuts on his left wrist and a pocket knife with a dried red substance was found in the vicinity, he stated. The Academy-Award winner was 63. “The work of the coroner’s office is not complete at this time,” Lt. Boyd stressed. He said a final cause of death would be released in several weeks after toxicology tests are completed. “The forensic examination conducted by Dr. Joseph Cohen did not [indicate]…that Mr. Williams had been...
  • SC Supreme Court to rule on public autopsy reports

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Are autopsies medical records or public records? South Carolina's Supreme Court will begin grappling with that question Wednesday, when it hears a lawsuit by a Sumter County newspaper against the county's coroner. The Item newspaper wants the high court to toss out a lower court's ruling that said autopsies do not have to be made public because they do not fall under the state's Freedom of Information Act.
  • What a coincidence! Breitbart's coroner dead from arsenic poisoning?

    The unexpected death of conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart just got a whole lot more mysterious. Only two months after Breitbart’s passing, the coroner that investigated the cause of death may have succumbed to arsenic poisoning. Michael Cormier, 61, passed away on April 20, the Los Angeles Times reports this week. Although Cormier’s death is only being publicized now, the timing of actual passing actually came within hours of the release of the preliminary autopsy report of Breitbart. Commenting to the Times on the latest news, Lt. Alan Hamilton of the Los Angeles Police Department says that investigators have not ruled...

  • Possible arsenic poisoning probed in death of coroner's official

    Authorities said a Los Angeles County coroner's official, Michael Cormier, appears to have died from poisoning. "At this point we haven't ruled out foul play," said Lt. Alan Hamilton of the Los Angeles Police Department. "It is one of the things being considered. We are waiting for the coroner's results." Law enforcement sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing, said that finding the presence of poison does not necessarily mean the death was a homicide because the substance could have accidentally entered his system

    The office of the Los Angeles County coroner has completed its investigation into the death of Andrew Breitbart on March 1, and has confirmed that he died of natural causes, namely heart failure. Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey told Breitbart News that the final autopsy report would be released next week. A press release issued by the Department of Coroner (below) notes: "No prescription or illicit drugs were detected. The blood alcohol was .04%," a negligible amount. The press release concludes: "No significant trauma was present and foul play is not suspected."

    Why did a former Hennepin County pathologist keep the skull of a murder victim on whom he conducted an autopsy in 1978? No one knows. Dr. Kenneth Osterberg took the answer with him when he died in 2000. But the discovery of Ricky McGuire's skull in Osterberg's garage two years ago not only raised that question, it has now spawned a federal lawsuit, filed this week against the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, the Hennepin County Medical Center and the mortuary that buried the body. McGuire's family never knew they'd buried the 17-year-old without his head. No one ever told them....

    It was some years that I sat at the bar of a rural pub in southeastern England; a night in mid-winter when it was dark both outside and within, culling through piles of coins I had laid on the bar. Decimalization of British currency had occurred some years before, but the old one-shilling and two-shilling (12 pence and 24 pence, respectively) coins were still monetized, serving as 5 pence and 10 pence pieces under the new system. I was looking for those, and much to my gratification, finding many of them; even silver ones, even a few pieces dating back...

    PITTSBURGH - Celebrity pathologist Cyril Wecht used government employees as secretaries, gofers and chauffeurs for himself and his private business while working as Allegheny County's medical examiner and coroner, prosecutors said Monday at the start of Wecht's trial. Wecht, 76, is charged with 41 counts, including wire fraud, mail fraud and theft. He has denied wrongdoing, and his attorneys have maintained that the charges are politically motivated. "In plain English, what he did was he stole, and he did it for the same reasons people have stolen for thousands of years: so he could make more money and because he...

    BELLEVILLE, Ill. - A baby sitter charged with murder clubbed a pregnant woman in the head repeatedly with a table leg, then cut her fetus from the womb in a bathtub where she later drowned the victim's three young children, an investigator testified Wednesday. The grisly details in the September slayings of Jimella Tunstall and her family were revealed at a hearing where a coroner's jury, after a few minutes of deliberations, concluded the deaths were homicides. Tiffany Hall, 24, has been charged with first-degree murder and faces a possible death sentence in the death of Tunstall and with intentional...

    OXFORD (Reuters) - One of Britain's most experienced journalists was unlawfully killed by U.S. soldiers in Iraq, a British inquest into his death ruled on Friday, prompting calls for the perpetrators to be tried for war crimes. Veteran war correspondent Terry Lloyd, 50, who worked for British television company ITN, was killed in March 2003 in southern Iraq as he reported from the front line during the first few days of the U.S.-led invasion. "He was fired on by American soldiers as a minibus carried wounded people away," Coroner Andrew Walker said at the conclusion of the inquest, which U.S....

    HOURS after boarding the luxury cruise that would result in her death, Dianne Brimble's friend warned her of a group of men who had been ogling female passengers, a Sydney inquest was told today. The next morning, Ms Brimble, 42, was found dead in a cabin belonging to some of those same men. Police allege she had been given a lethal dose of the date rape drug gamma-hydroxybutyrate before being sexually assaulted. The inquest was told Ms Brimble had been ecstatic, setting out on the "holiday of a lifetime" with family and friends on the P&O liner Pacific Sky on...

    For the first time in Santa Clara County, the coroner's office has listed the use of Tasers by police officers as one of the factors causing a person's death. The main cause of Jose Angel Rios' death late last year was heart failure during his cocaine-fueled battle against San Jose police officers, according to an autopsy obtained Friday by the Mercury News. The 38-year-old's obesity and heart disease caused by cocaine use were also listed as causes. The manner of death -- accidental, homicide, suicide, etc. -- was ``undetermined.'' Dr. Christopher Happy also concluded a ``contributory cause of death'' was...

    Dr. Cyril Wecht, the Allegheny County coroner, is as brilliant as he is bombastic. And he is very brilliant. I genuinely like him, but sometimes he infuriates all of us. His dismissive comments about Christians a few days ago border on religious bigotry. He disagrees. Wecht had been hired by the defense as a consultant in the Scott Peterson murder trial. He did his own autopsy on Laci Peterson and her unborn son, Connor. Peterson, as stone cold a murderer as there is, killed his pregnant wife and dumped the body in the San Francisco Bay, while having an affair,...

    On Tuesday, he jumped on the city coroner's labeling the death of Alberta Spruill - who suffered a heart attack following the mistaken no-knock raid by the NYPD - a "homicide." Now, this is a technical term: It means that an examiner has determined that the death was caused by another person. The term is most assuredly not synonymous with murder - which, as with manslaughter, is a legal term applied after an analysis of a death determines that a crime has been committed. Sharpton, as per usual, has gone right over the top: Pouncing on the medical examiner's word...
