House Bill 1083 – Coroners’ Death Reports (FAILED)

Rep. Clyde Kersey, D-Terre Haute, authored this bill that would require a coroner to file a supplemental report concerning a person’s time of death, if more precise information becomes available at a later date. New language was suggested to create a deadline for a coroner to release cause of death information. In a number of high-profile death cases, coroners had not released information saying there were no deadlines in law to do so. The bill failed to get a hearing in the House Committee on Public Health chaired by Rep. Tim Brown, R-Crawfordsville.
