2108.264 Information regarding cause of death.

If an anatomical gift of a part from a decedent under the jurisdiction of the coroner has been or might be made and, after any necessary consultation with the prosecuting attorney, it is determined that the recovery of the part could interfere with the determination of the decedent's cause or manner of death, the coroner shall communicate with a procurement organization or physician or technician designated by the procurement organization about the proposed recovery. The procurement organization shall provide the coroner with all information the procurement organization has that could relate to the cause or manner of death. The coroner shall allow the recovery unless the coroner reasonably believes that the part or the decedent's intact body is needed for law enforcement purposes.
