Death investigation is a process that involves cooperation and sharing of information between many agencies. The Iowa Office of the State Medical Examiner (IOSME) works with law enforcement agencies, including local police, sheriff’s offices, DCI, FBI, and many others. Agencies are welcomed and encouraged to attend autopsies as part of their investigation into a death. Officers needing to attend an autopsy should contact the IOSME as soon as possible for scheduling information.
