M.E.'s journal:

Thursday, March 16: "Where's the Medical Examiner?" asked District Attorney Markham.
"He's coming," Sergeant Heath told him. "You can't get Doc Doremus to go anywheres without his breakfast."

S. S. Van Dine, writing in The Canary Murder Case, 1927

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