In most cases, the deceased is released to a funeral home of the family’s choice. Should a funeral home be unavailable to receive the deceased, the Coroner’s Office will arrange transportation to the county cooler located on the grounds of Logan Funeral Home.

If further examination is required, i.e. autopsy, the deceased is transported to the GBI Medical Examiner’s Office.

Autopsies are conducted at the headquarters laboratory in Decatur, Georgia. Upon completion of all investigations, the Coroner’s Office will release the deceased to the funeral home of the family’s choosing.
