Organ Retention: Pathologist
For decades, Ontario's coroners kept the organs retained from autopsies. And in many cases, the families were never informed that the organs had been removed. Now, the coroner is trying to track down those family members so that they can properly dispose of the remains. The coroners have approximately four thousand organs in storage, some of which have been stored since the nineteen-seventies.
