The Coconino County Health and Human Services Medical Examiner's Office investigates reportable deaths as defined by ARS §11-593. Post mortem examinations are preformed to determine the cause and manner of death of an individual.

Upon request, Arizona law requires a medical examiner to meet with an immediate family member to assist with identification within 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) of the family's notification of the death of a loved one. During that meeting, the family will be provided with an identifying photo or a description to confirm the ID is correct.
