My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
'Trials' was the nearest title I could see! I'm trying to determine how soon an autopsy might take place and an inquest might begin in the following circumstances:
1 A formerly healthy young man dies and the attending hospital physicians say he died of a meth overdose.
2 There is no reason to suspect any other cause of death
3 Cal State law says accidental death from a drug overdose must be considered at an inquest
1 How soon would the autopsy be performed and its results made available to the coroner?
2 Assuming the autopsy clearly says meth was the cause of death, what is the earliest the inquest would begin?
