More than 13,000 people die in King County every year, but only a handful of those deaths are ever investigated by the medical examiner. But what does the medical examiner's office really do, and how do they take care of people after they die? We talk with a King County medical examiner and a death investigator to find out. WARNING: This interview may contain some graphic and disturbing content.


Dr. Micheline Lubin is a medical examiner at the King County Medical Examiner's Office.

James Sosik is a death investigator for the King County Medical Examiner's Office.
