Medical Examiner

Mission Statement

The mission of the Dunn County Medical Examiner's Office is to provide a voice for the deceased in terms of investigating and ultimately ruling on manner and cause of death. We are statutorily responsible to investigate any unexplained, unusual, or suspicious deaths. These include: accidents, homicides, suicides, deaths unattended by a physician, deaths following a medical intervention, deaths within 24 hours of admission to a health care facility, and deaths where the attending physician is unavailable or unwilling to sign the death certificate. We strive to provide a compassionate, complete, and accurate medicolegal investigation. 

If reporting a death, please contact the Dunn County Sheriff's Department at 715-232-1348.
