Information concerning traumatic cases will not be released until after an inquest is held. Information can be obtained by immediate family members and/or insurance companies. The Freedom of Information Act allows for non-family members to obtain reasonable information concerning a decedent if that person has a good reason to have said information. However, this can be denied.
Under the State Statute (Public Act 96-1161 of Illinois Revised Statutes) the office of coroner is to charge for specific documents. These fees are listed below:
All fees must be made payable with a check or money order to the Fulton County Coroners Office.
All documents or items requested must be paid for prior to being released.
Not every case will warrant all of the above tests and/or documentation. Furthermore, only those documents generated by our office will be available.
If you want information on a specific case, you can come to our office at 1601 E Chestnut Street Canton, IL 61520 or you can call from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday at (309) 647-5368.
