Letter from the Coroner

Header 3

The year has been a very challenging but a busy year for our office. We will continue to strive in building relationships with our County Commissioners, County Prosecutor’s Office, Judicial system, Law Enforcement, emergency medical resources, Health Department, and local funeral homes. Our office wants to extend our gratitude to all of the departments that we continue to work with. These departments help our office in tremendous ways, and we are so thankful to work with

these women and men.

In the past our office has investigated over 2,000 deaths during the 12-year period by the previous coroner. Our Goal is to continue to represent those who can no longer speak for themselves. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us, 678-625-1218.

 I would like to give a personal thank you to my Deputies, volunteers and administrative assistant for the time and effort that they have put in developing our team. The Coroner office works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including holidays. Without their dedication to the community and their compassion to help families of the deceased, this office could not function efficiently.
