What is next?


After the coroner’s office has left, your loved one will be transported to a secure location. Due to media relations and possible criminal activity, the destination of the deceased is not always identified.

The Coroner and his team will work to complete the investigation as quick as possible. We encourage questions and are always available to the families.

Next steps will be contacting the funeral home of your choice and notifying them that the Shelby County Coroner is investigating. They will work with you to complete arrangements and coordinate transportation with our office.
