When a death occurs suddenly or it cannot be explained, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) conducts an investigation, under the authority of the Fatality Inquiries Act.
OCME investigates deaths to determine:
- identity of the deceased
- date and place of death
- medical reason for death (why it occurred)
- manner of death
