Our featured Speaker #1 Dr. Lakshmanan Sathyavagiswaran

Course Title: MEDICO LEGAL DEATH INVESTIGATION OF HIGH PROFILE CASES AND MEDIA INTEREST

He served as the Los Angeles County Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner/Director from 1992 to 2013 (Retired) and the Interim Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner in 2016. Being in Los Angeles, he was directly involved in the death investigation of high profile deaths, including Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman (OJ Simpson murder trial) and Michael Jackson.

Course Description:

A team-based approach is used by the LA County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner forensic scientists, Medical examiners, investigators to investigate the Circumstances and determine the cause and manner of death of decedents falling under the jurisdiction of the Department of Medical Examiner /Coroner. The need for compassion, integrity, and following of rigorous scientific standards will be emphasized. This will have the greatest impact on the grieving next of kin and families of the decedent by bringing them closure. Evidence collection at the scene and at autopsy Including toxicology samples, preservation, and maintenance of chain of custody will be reviewed. The role consultants have in a large medical Examiner-Coroner office and how their consultation reports enhance the quality of the medico-legal death Investigation will be discussed.

A well-managed public information program is crucial to the medical examiner’s reputation and ability to communicate necessary information to the public. Most of the work that forensic professionals do is hidden from the public eye. It is only in widely-publicized cases that the public becomes aware of the details of forensic work. Much of the public perception of forensic work comes from how we handle these cases and how they are portrayed in print, television, or electronic media. Local law governs the amount of information that the medical examiner may release. The public information officer must be aware of what release is allowed and should facilitate the public dissemination of releasable information. In this context, it is important to remember that there is no off-the-record information. Official requests (for example by the police) to withhold or release records should always be in writing, as the media may assert a First Amendment right to obtain the information. Clips of Trial testimony from a high profile case will demonstrate the challenges that the medical examiner faces during court testimony.


Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the role of the medical examiner in determining cause and manner of death in High profile cases and understand the importance of scene investigation

  • Understand the importance of the public information officer and need for security measures in high-profile cases

  • Appreciate the challenges that the medical examiner faces during court testimony

  • Understand the role of consultants in MultidisciplinaryMedico legal death investigation
