LANDER, Wyo. (AP) - The coroner in Fremont County is recommending that the county hire a forensic pathologist.

Coroner Ed McAuslan says Fremont County could save almost $100,000 a year by having a forensic pathologist on staff rather than continuing to send bodies to Colorado for autopsies.

He pitched the case for a forensic pathologist to the county commission Tuesday. The Riverton Ranger reports (https://www.dailyranger.com/) several commissioners said they support the idea.

McAuslan also said a forensic pathologist would be able to visit homicide scenes in addition to conducting those autopsies in Fremont County.
