The physicians of the William L. Jenkins Forensic Center may perform private autopsies which are usually requested by the decedent’s next of kin. Inquiries into private autopsies are directed to the Director of Operations or designee and must be approved by the Forensic Center Director. Fees for these services are based on the William L. Jenkins Forensic Center fee schedule and payment is required in the form of a money order or cashier’s check. Next of kin must be made aware that payment for these services is required in advance of acceptance of the body to the Forensic Center and before the performance of the autopsy.
If you are interested in a private autopsy for a family member please contact:
Director of Operations
Note: Not all inquiries are accepted by the center’s Medical Director, acceptance is determined on a case by case basis.
