Charles Brewer – Oakland Deputy Coroner
Investigators like Brewer are the key link between police and paramedics on the street and the forensic pathologists who perform autopsies nearly every weekday at the coroner’s lab in a nondescript building near Jack London Square.
“We are not focused on who did it,” Brewer said. “That’s for the police. We focus on how he did it. How did this guy die?”
The coroner’s office handles about 3,800 death cases each year. Of those, about 1,100 involve a coroner’s autopsy.
