The Yakima Coroner’s Office serves the community by investigating sudden, unexpected, violent, suspicious, or unnatural deaths.  The Coroner’s staff recognizes the tragedy surrounding any untimely death and performs investigations, in part, to assist the grieving family.  A complete investigation provides for the expeditious settling of estates and insurance claims, as well as for implementing civil and criminal actions.  Questions which seem irrelevant in the initial hours after death can become significant in the following months.  The surviving family, friends, and general public can have the assurance the Coroner conducted a comprehensive investigation.
