How can I get a copy of OCME reports (autopsy)?

October 17, 2022

How do I obtain a copy of the autopsy report?

Please email to request a copy of the business record. The business record will contain all the forensic studies done by us (autopsy, investigative, and forensic laboratory reports) as well as the cause and manner of death.

In the email, include decedent name and the OCME case number. There is no fee for families. For non-family members or members of the public, it is $47 per record.

When is the business record (investigative, autopsy, and toxicology reports) available?

We seek to complete all forensic studies within 90 days of the date of death, which is the national standard for case closure and report completion. We’ll email you the business record as soon as we receive your email request, if the case has closed. If not closed we will log your request and email you the business record as soon as it’s available.
