Pretty messed up and insensitive to say, "all it takes is 3.75. Who doesnt have 3.75?" Not everyone has money for things like this, even as little as 3.75. As an example, for years every day my neighbor was always asking me 3.50. Every. Single. Day. And one day I had some extra cash and I thought to myself, "you know what I can finally help my neighbor out." Then I realized he was a giant prehistoric water lizard in a red wig. That god damn lochness monster has been hounding me for tree fiddy for years! He doesnt have 3.75 for this.

I thought he was going to talk about the company that offered to perform autopsy on the body of an old woman, but instead she was sold to the military to be used for explosives testing. Investigators found other horrors when searching the place, including a corpse of a woman hanging on the wall for "decoration" and a body of a large man that had its head cut off and replaced with the head of a small woman. I'm not joking, this actualy happened. The company charged money for its "services" as well

This is absolutely my ideal career. I'm in second year med school, but the student debt problem in this country might keep many of us from our dreams. Many others, like me, are over 1,000,000 in debt and when it comes to residency searching we may have to choose rural med for some sort of repayment plan. It sucks. It really does. @LastWeekTonight solve our education system too? K thanks :)

1. It is important to remember, especially as an audience member of a show that brings to light the dysfunction in our society, that our society on the whole is one of the most functional societies on the planet. Don't feel too cynical. 2. Having said that, there is always a need to bring to light dysfunction, and that's where this show exists. Just remember that it isn't all dysfunction, in fact it mostly functions.

While I ordinarily agree with what John says on the show, I think the coroner who was interviewed about the burned out car had a somewhat valid point. I'm going to do some more research to see where the coroner's responsibility is supposed to start and stop in the process but I think it's a problem that we ridicule that statement - "there's no way to say". To me, it sounds like what he's saying is, yes, if you consider all the evidence - where the car was in relation to the police station, possibly whether the car was tampered with or accelerants were used (don't know the case, just an example) then you can form a picture overall as to whether something is a crime or not. But that shouldn't be his job as a criminal investigator - it should be to examine the body and determine a cause of death - in this case, was it the fire, or was the body already dead when the car burned? Why did the car burn? Was it an accident? A faulty car? A homicide? An investigation will have to be done and I am not saying that it shouldn't - and it's wrong that the whole decision as to whether that happens or not is based on the cause of death the coroner identifies. But that doesn't change the fact that I think the coroner is correct to say that he cannot and should not be making any of those decisions based on the evidence he can see an examine: the corpse. Anything else would be nothing more than speculation.

Who else sees John Merrick in David Lynch's "The Elephant Man" as an analogy for mental illness? Perhaps, the illness is of the undiagnosed nature, not necessarily schizophrenia but a misrepresented psychopathy, or even one of a contagious sort. Who else thinks there is a Vasilius running body parts for Renaissance pharmacy on the black market?

The fuck is wrong with the USA. In Greece to become a coroner you have to finish med school and then have 3 years of "residency" on being a coroner. And then you become one, and you get paid more than doctors, who have been residents for more years (4-6 unlike coroners)

Terrifying episode. Almost unbelievable. I was born in a third world country, and the way this is handled there is different. In natural deaths medical doctors sign the death certificate after external examination of the body and medical records, if there is indication of violence involved (homicide, suicide, car accident, poisoning, unknown origin) there is a report filed by authorities and autopsy is mandated before the family can get the body for burial or cremation. In big cities the autopsy is performed in by pathologists, and in rural areas it is performed in a section of the public cementery, by one of the medical doctors in town who works for the public hospital. Usually that responsibility is rotated or assigned to the newest one in the mandatory Social Service Year. And because it is expected from them all the MD's, they had spent at least six months from the whole career devoted to what is called Medicina Legal, learning the procedures and skills to determine how a person died.

I live in Georgia and can confirm the coroner is elected. I was shocked when I first learned this. I was far more shocked when I learned that a close family member had actually been a coroner in the past, despite a complete lack of medical training. They're family, but... they really shouldn't have been doing something like that. They've portrayed it as not much more than being someone who had to declare a person dead and what was to be done. Granted, they also had to follow rules about what happened to the body, especially concerning when an autopsy must be performed. They say that they'd been hounded by families wanting the remains of a loved one returned immediately that were enraged when told that the situation required, by nature of the scenario, an autopsy. I'd like to think they did well in the position, but you can't substitute proper training...

When my little brother died, we knew why- he died in the throes of a status grande mal seizure. But as he was on several experimental meds and his brain damage was the result of a malpractice, he had to have a full autopsy. We got his remains less than 2 weeks later, in time for the funeral, but it was *18 MONTHS* before the autopsy results were released. After hearing the woman’s story of struggling due to not getting life insurance funds in a timely fashion, I wonder if my parents also had to wait and thus pay for those massive hospital bills on their own- I’m betting they did.

Disappointing economics. Life expectancy is 70+ years. We're looking at $200–$300 per capita over a normal lifetime, to investigate a small fractions of deaths. Not huge, but not insignificant, either.
