Does every death involve the coroner?
Coroners have jurisdiction over all deaths that occur in their county under suspicious, unusual or unnatural circumstances. The Coroner may also be involved in natural deaths that were unattended by a physician. The Coroner will actually investigate approximately 12% of the deaths in their county and 60% of those may be natural deaths.
