Emergencies and Public Safety

Douglas County Coroner's Office

Kansas state statutes require that the County Coroner determine the cause and manner of all unattended deaths. Any death that is the sudden or unexpected or the result of a homicide, suicide or an accident triggers a coroner’s investigation. Other examples of cases requiring investigation are deaths of juveniles, deaths that occur in custody, any death that occurs within 24 hours of admission to a hospital or deaths in which identification of the body is not certain.
