    Is viewing at the Medical Examiner's Office permitted?

    Can I view the body and do I have to identify my loved one?

    No.  The Medical Examiner’s Office does not have facilities to view bodies.  You should make viewing arrangements with the funeral home or crematory handling final disposition of the remains.

    If identification of a decedent is required, a medical examiner’s office representative will contact the next-of-kin to discuss appropriate identification methods and obtain pertinent information.  If your loved one is missing, it is recommended to contact the police department to file a missing person report.
