Where is my loved one now?

 When it is necessary for the Coroner's Office to remove the deceased from the scene for further investigation, he/she is transported to the Boone County Coroners Office. It is not the normal policy of the Coroner's Office to allow visitation with the deceased by anyone once the body arrives at our facility. If necessary, a pathologist will preform an autopsy examination, usually within 24 hours. In certain cases, this type of exam is required by law.

Transportation :

The deceased is transported to the Coroner's Office by a Coroner's Office staff member. You have the right to select a funeral home of your choice to handle all arrangements. Please let the Coroner's Office know what funeral home you prefer. Transportation from the Coroner's Office will be provided by the funeral home.
