DE Rep. To Look At Policy Change For Medical Examiner

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Investigators continue to look at the circumstances surrounding the compromised drug evidence.

At least one state representative tells WMDT he wants to change the role of the Chief Medical Examiner's office to be spread out in a statewide network.

"Ideally, we can have staffing in each county so that way they can go on call still do their job and when needed for court, they are there within a moments notice," said Rep. Stephen Smyk (R-Milton).

Smyk says he would look at a policy change rather than a bill. Our sources have said there are at least 25 drug-related cases were tampered with in the first state, some dating back as far as 2011.
