How Can I Obtain an Autopsy or Examination Report?

While autopsy reports may be public records, the Medical Examiner’s Office will withhold any autopsy report that is subject to an ongoing investigation or criminal case.  Further, the Medical Examiner’s Office will not release autopsy reports to non-family members absent a significant public interest that outweighs the privacy interest of the decedent and the decedent’s family.

Records, when available, will be transmitted via secure e-mail.  Please note that examination reports generally take between 10 and 12 weeks to complete.  Reports will not be released if they are pending further investigation or are part of an ongoing legal proceeding.

Please note that we do not have any records for deaths that occurred in Clark County (Las Vegas).
