Missouri House approves and sends to the Senate an, “adequate training”, requirement for County Coroners

(Jefferson City)–Missouri 121st District State Representative Donald Mayhew of Crocker reports the House has approved a bill to require adequate training for County Coroners.
According to Mayhew, this legislation would ensure county coroners receive adequate training to properly perform their job duties. The bill would establish a Coroner Standards and Training Commission to establish training standards for the office of county coroner. Known as the “Jayke Minor Act,” the bill is named in honor of a young man whose death in 2011 was initially ruled to be the result of a drug overdose with no autopsy conducted. Toxicology results later ruled out a drug overdose and the coroner changed his findings. The bill now moves to the Senate for consideration.
