(La Porte County, IN) - The La Porte County Coroner is going to have an office for the first time. That will give the coroner things like space for storage.
No longer will the coroner have to store things at home. La Porte County Council president Randy Novak definitely sees the need for the office. “If you’re out in the middle of the night and you take a body sample or something you might have to come home and put it in your refrigerator until the next morning and you’re wife is like, hey, what’s in the bag in the frig. You got body bags stacked in a room in your house and you got other stuff. That’s absolutely wrong that’s been done like that,” he said.
La Porte County Coroner Lynn Swanson said she plans to be at the office five days a week and
have her secretary switch from working at home to the office.
