The Fulton County Coroner’s Office exists to serve the community by providing timely Medico-Legal death investigations in a professional and courteous manner, while ensuring the highest level of compassion, dignity, and respect for the deceased and their families.
The Fulton County Coroner’s Office investigates all deaths occurring in Fulton County. The Coroners Creed and the CORONER’S ACT establish questions that must be answered to fulfill the requirements of these investigations. These questions are: who, how, where, when, and why are the facts concerning the decedents death? Based on investigation of decedent’s death, from the findings of the autopsy or toxicology results, the cause and manner of death are usually determined. We seek to provide care and justice for the deceased and for the family and friends of the deceased.
