The function of the county coroner is one of death investigation. Death investigations often include scene investigation, witness and family interviews, medical records reviews, attending physician opinions, toxicology studies and thorough body examinations. If necessary, an autopsy may be done.
The Revised Code of Washington (RCW) describes the authority and jurisdiction of the county coroner. The Island County Coroner’s Office (ICCO) has jurisdiction only in deaths that occur within the geographical limits of Island County.
