JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - With only one pathologist in the state medical examiner's
Lauderdale County Coroner Clay Cobler tells The Clarion-Leger that some autopsies have been done in just one day, but he once waited nine days for an autopsy. He says that autopsy took place after the body and two others were sent to a Gulf Coast pathologist.
Cobler says the state cannot afford to do that daily, and waited until they had three bodies to send.
Dr. Adel Shaker is the only state medical examiner
