There is a medical examiner show that I watch sometimes about real cases of people that have died. The medical examiner records information on the findings and she states out loud what she is looking for so that the viewer understands the steps.
I thought that the show would be quite gruesome but it wasn’t. It was really informative and interesting. For example, there was a case about a man that suddenly died and the medical examiner was trying to understand what happened to him.
She realized that he was taking a strong pain medication that was in a patch form that somehow was cut which lead to the patient receiving a lethal dosage of the medication and died. This was a manufacturer's defect and not a homicide.
The nice thing about this profession is that they get to give the family some answers that only the medical examiner would know about the loved one. I can see where this field would be rewarding because since the victim cannot speak the medical examiner could alert investigators of how the person died especially if the death was part of a cover up.
At least this way the dead person will have justice after all. A medical examiner could also consider coroner training and consider this option as well and seek elected office to become a county coroner.
