M.E.'s journal:

Sunday, October 1:
Coroner Mellen looked at her a moment, and then said, as if dismissing her, "You will, of course, be called upon to give your testimony at the inquest." His curt nod of dismissal was sufficient to send Mrs. Carstairs from the room, but she paid no heed to it.
Carolyn Wells, writing in Anybody but Anne, 1913.

Find a revealing Medical Examiner, Coroner, or Morgue quote? Email it to your host for inclusion in the M.E.'s journal!
