OK ME Cases Overwhelming

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY Okla_ The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office is experiencing a backlog; it has 1,350 cases pending.

That includes nearly 1,200 from this year, 165 from 2012 and seven from 2011.

A spokeswoman said the agency does not have enough room for people they need to hire. Lawmakers are looking at $42M to move into a new building. That does not include money for expensive equipment that would be needed.
