What will happen if an autopsy is performed?

Answer: 

Your loved one will be transported to the Iowa Office of the State Medical Examiner for autopsy at our facility, which is located in Ankeny, Iowa. Usually, an investigator will be in contact with you prior to autopsy to discuss the history of your loved one and to obtain additional information. When the autopsy is complete, the deceased will be released to the funeral home of your choice.
