Physicians Obtaining Coroner Reports:
In cases where the cause and manner of death are not determined at the time of the autopsy (in other words, pending further investigation), copies of the autopsy, investigative and toxicology reports will usually be available a few weeks after the cause of death is determined and a death certificate is filed.
Reports are released only after all the reports (autopsy, investigative, and toxicology) and the death certificate have been completed. We do not prepare preliminary reports.
If you desire these reports concerning your patients, please write, or telephone this office with your request.
If when you receive the reports you have questions, please call our office at (630) 407 2600.
Although we determine and finalize the information on the death certificate, our office does not provide certified copies of the death certificate.
You may request certified copies of the certified death certificates from the DuPage County Health Department.
