Bullets, Drugs, and Deception: A Team Approach to Death Investigation

The Office of the State Chief Medical Examiner is offering six (6) Free Two-Day Workshops Designed for Medical Examiners, Medicolegal Death Investigators, and Law Enforcement.  This course is designed to foster collaboration between law enforcement and medical death investigators through a combination of didactic lectures focusing on statutes which govern medical examiners and their investigators, drug overdose trends, deaths by suicide, and a virtual death scene, in which participants from different disciplines work together to gather evidence, information, and clues. At the completion of this course, students will be able to explain the laws governing the jurisdiction of medicolegal death investigators at a scene and the contributions of medical examiners,  medicolegal death investigators, and law enforcement in the determination of cause and manner of death. Enrollment is limited to 32 participants, 20 CME/CMEI and 12 LE, so as to enhance interaction and conversations between and amongst participants and faculty. This training program is the product of a collaboration between the Tennessee Department of Health, Office of the State Chief Medical Examiner and the Middle Tennessee State University Forensic Institute for Research and Education.
