“A Visit from the Chief Medical Examiner”

Join us for our March 13th Lunch on Tuesdays program and meet Dr. William Gormley, Chief Medical Examiner. In Virginia, medicolegal death investigators conduct a medicolegal death investigation, serving as the principal case investigator for deaths falling within the OCME statutory authority. The Code of Virginia dictates that all of the following deaths be investigated by the OCME:

  • Any death from trauma, injury, violence, or poisoning attributable to accident, suicide or homicide;
  • Sudden deaths to persons in apparent good health or deaths unattended by a physician;
  • Deaths of persons in jail, prison, or another correctional institution, or in police custody (this includes deaths from legal intervention);
  • Deaths of persons receiving services in a state hospital or training center operated by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services;
  • The sudden death of any infant; and
  • Any other suspicious, unusual, or unnatural death.

Come hear about some of the most interesting cases encountered by the Office of Chief Medical Examiner as well as an update on the current opioid epidemic.

Cost to Attend: $15 per person - members and guests (includes lunch buffet)
