The Coroner

The Coroner investigates all unexpected, accidental and/or suspicious deaths. She is assisted in this by officers from Devon and Cornwall Police as well as local pathologists. Part of her work includes conducting inquests into these deaths which are attended by interested parties and sometimes expert witnesses. Inquests are commonly held at venues which are conveniently close to the local communities or, in some circumstances, at County Hall in Exeter.
