The Deer Lodge County Coroner’s Office extends its deepest sympathy to all the family members and friends at the difficult time following the death of a loved one. The processing of scene provides the factual information needs to determine what occurred. In many cases, evidence obtained at the scene may be critical to the outcome of investigations.
As part of any death investigation, information must be gathered. This includes asking questions which may be painful and upsetting to family members and friends. It may also include collecting a variety of evidentiary items. As pain full and upsetting as these questions and procedures may be, please keep in mind they are necessary and required in a death investigation.
If there is something the Coroner’s Office can do for you to minimize the pain of this process, such as call a friend, clergy, or family member, please let us know.
I assure you, your loved one will be treated with the utmost respect and dignity. My office and staff are committed to serving the community as an advocate for the deceased and their families in this time of need and sorrow.
