Program


Earl Crowe and Kaitlyn Vanweerdhuizen gave the program on the duties of the coroner's office and funeral homes.  It was enlightening, and Erik said they "killed it".  Earl discussed some of the cases and challenges he has had over the years.  There are only two coroners in Chelan County, and a prosecutor for Douglas County. They investigated over 450 deaths last year alone. These included those by natural causes, accidents, suicides (11), and homicides (0).
Kaitlyn discussed life working in the funeral home business.  They move the bodies from place of death to the funeral home or other facility.  Their duties include dealing with the deceased and their families, and state obligations.
