Where are my loved one’s belongings?

The Medical Examiner documents the articles of clothing, jewelry, and items that were contained in the pockets of the clothing (money, credit cards, etc.) and releases these items to the funeral home at the time your loved one’s care is transferred. In some cases, the belongings are released to law enforcement as evidence.
