WELCOME TO THE
BIBB COUNTY CORONER'S OFFICE
OFFICIAL WEB SITE
The Coroner’s office is a twenty-four hour a day, seven-day a week
operation which investigates and determines Cause and Manner of Death.
Coroner Leon Jones and his staff investigate cases of homicide, suicide,
accident and all natural deaths that are sudden, unexpected or medically
unattended. The Coroner’s office is charged by Georgia Law to
determine the Cause and Manner of Death by an extensive investigation which
may include a post-mortem examination. This investigation is
independent of the sheriff, police and/or fire departments but is done in
conjunction with those other entities.
A post-mortem examination (autopsy) is ordered by this
office only when it is vital in the determination of Cause and Manner
of Death. When ordered by this office, a charge for the
autopsy is never incurred by the family.
Our autopsies are only performed by a Board Certified Forensic
Pathologist. Autopsies do not preclude an open casket
