Hours of Operation
Standard business hours for the general public are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday except major holidays. Our goal is to have the physical autopsy completed and body released to the family within 24 hours and final completion of the autopsy report and ancillary laboratory tests in seven weeks or less.

Impact On Families and the Criminal Justice Process

The unexpectedness of death is a source of trauma, anxiety and grief among survivors. Talking to the bereaved is a sacred responsibility, and we strive to conduct ourselves with compassion, caring and genuine concern. This is a critical aspect in serving our public.
Deaths due to homicide represent a significant percentage of our work. The results of our autopsy findings are a critical part of the investigation and prosecution in homicide cases. Forensic pathology also plays a part in motor vehicle deaths, which sometimes involve criminal or civil liability. Our staff prides itself in working with both prosecutors and defense attorneys to assist them in understanding the results of the death investigation and autopsy, which improves the efficiency of the criminal justice system. Our pathologists work closely with the Texas Rangers, Texas Department of Public Service, county sheriff and city police officers.
