The most important factor is will the autopsy make a difference. Is it important, is it important, because often families want autopsies out of curiosity and that may be okay, but I wouldn't go out of the way to do such an option. I do about, I do many less, I'm asked to do lots of autopsies and I will do the autopsy where I think that an autopsy or re-autopsy would be significant for the family or for the society.
When we do autopsies on homicides, we have two things, one is the family and two is society. Society has a right to know what happened to somebody who's murdered and how to prevent it or catch the bad guy to do it. So that we have both of those and sometimes that comes into conflict as the prosecutor said that sometimes telling the family, which is important, comes in contact with the investigation from the public as far as giving information out to the bad guy to make up stories or something.
