The Crawford County Coroner, Scott T. Schell, investigates all Manner and Causes of Deaths. The Coroner's jurisdiction includes all homicides, suicides, and accidental deaths. The Coroner also investigates all deaths occurring in prison, under police custody, sudden infant deaths, stillbirths, and in hospital operating rooms when death is the result of operative and peri-operative procedures and not explainable on the basis of prior disease.
Deaths resulting from homicide, child abuse, elder abuse, and traffic accidents are of high concern to this office, and all real or suspected cases will be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted, or dealt with accordingly. This office fully intends to investigate all deaths resulting from drug abuse and bring prosecution against the identified illegal drug dealer.
