Ken Holmes worked in the Marin County Coroner's Office for 36 years, starting as a death investigator and ending as the three-term, elected coroner. As he grew into the job - which is different from what is depicted on television - Holmes learned a variety of skills, from finding hidden clues at death scenes, interviewing witnesses effectively, managing bystanders and reporters, preparing testimony for court, to notifying families of a death with sensitivity and compassion. He also learned about different kinds of firearms, all types of drugs - prescription and illegal - and about certain unexpected and potentially fatal phenomena such as autoeroticism.

Excellent read. What an Education.
As a seasoned law enforcement officer and an experienced Homicide investigator in a major metropolitan city I️ found the Education Of A Coroner and the life and times of Ken Holmes
fascinating. The vast mixture of cases and circumstances was compelling. The insight into the role of a death investigator was well explored and insightful. Let’s hope there’s more of this to come.
