Watch the Special Report Thursday at 10 PM
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — El Paso County has been without a permanent chief medical examiner for three years.
Thursday in a special report, NewsChannel 9's Kay Recede goes into the medical examiner's office and finds out how the county has been impacted. She also shares one man's claim that the interim chief may be causing more county taxpayers greatly. This Austin watchdog is no stranger to investigating medical examiners throughout the state.
"There are no county medical examiner offices in this state that were legal when I started this 10 years ago. And the majority are still not constitutional,” David Fisher explained, “In every county that I have confronted a medical examiner or violation of the statute and the constitution of the state. In every occasion the medical examiner was removed."
Hear more from this Austin watchdog plus one El Pasoan who has been effected and from County Judge Veronica Escobar. Examination evaluation, a special report only on NewsChannel 9 on Thursday.
