  • A public official who must investigate the causes of death, especially in cases where the cause appears suspicious or the death occurs under unusual or unnatural circumstances. The coroner has the power to order an autopsy when the cause of death is questionable. The word is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “official of the crown.”
