Coroner case closures are significantly delayed because of case load, case specific investigatory issues and staffing reductions. Therefore, we cannot state a specific time frame for case closure. A copy request can be made at anytime for a case report and it will remain on file until the case is closed.
If you have not received your report after several months, feel free to contact the Coroner’s Office (916-874-9320) to check the status of your case. One copy of the Coroner’s Report is available to the next-of-kin at no charge. Otherwise, copies of the Coroner’s Report or Autopsy Report are subject to collection of an established fee. Coroner's Report fees and office hours.
To obtain the first copy, please telephone the Coroner’s Office at (916) 874-9320 between 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. To order a copy of any other report, please forward a check/money order with a written request including the number of copies, the decedent’s name, date of death, and case number if you have it to:
