1) IF IT IS A CHILD AND AN UNKNOWN CAUSE OF DEATH, BY LAW, THE TISSUES ARE TO BE PRESERVED FOREVER!
2) IF THERE IS AN OPEN DEATH INVESTIGATION, TISSUES ARE EVIDENCE AND TO BE PRESERVED!
3) BY LAW, AS JAKE’S MOTHER AND SOLE REPRESENTATIVE ON HIS ESTATE. THE TISSUES ARE “PROPERTY” RIGHTFULLY MINE TO HAVE AND BE INDEPENDENTLY TESTED.
AT NO TIME DURING THE NEARLY 5 MONTHS IT TOOK TO COMPLETE A “UNKNOWN CAUSE” DEATH CERTIFICATE, DID I NOT HAVE DAILY CONTACT WITH THE CORNER!
WERE ANY OF THE TESTS EVEN RUN ON MY SON’S TISSUES? I HAVE GREAT DOUBTS ANY OF THE TESTS WERE RUN ON MY SON’S TISSUES. AGAIN I ASK? WHERE ARE MY SON’S TISSUES? WHO’S TISSUES WERE USED IN HIS PLACE???!!!!
Detective Henry Stucky and the Larimer Country Coroner have refused to respond to me or any of my phone calls, emails for months. Detective Stucky will however tell news channels there is an open death investigation.
Jake’s autopsy and death certificate took a near record-breaking 5 months to issue. I became extremely concerned and started demanding a list of tissues samples taken from the office in about July of 2016. I kept getting told by Dianne Fairman “the pathologist” had not got back to her. This went on for weeks.
I should mention Jake tested negative for ALL blood bacteria and viruses while the coroner still had Jake’s body! As you will see in the text messages.
Dianne made it seem the “pathologist” was in Denver or somewhere. I was shocked to find out, it was Mr. Wilkerson the Larimer County Coroner in the same building with her!!
****IN AUGUST OF 2016, I BEGAN TO SEARCH FOR A SECOND PRIVATE AUTOPSY TO BE PERFORMED. I WAS MET WITH GREAT RESISTANCE THAT I WAS REQUESTING MY SON’S SAMPLES BE SHIPPED****
I finally secured an independent pathologist. My pathologist wanted fresh cuts sent. The coroner’s office began stalling and not shipping the samples.
I called Dianne Fairman very upset. She said, we are having to go through Jake’s samples by hand. I was furious, I said “After 4 months my son’s tissues should be labeled in gold!!”
I started calling other coroner offices across the country and they were telling me, this did not seem right. I filed a formal complaint against the Larimer County Coroner with the National Association of Medical Examiner’s in September 2016, for un-ethical behavior.
*I am emailing the detective and the coroner none stop. Something is suspicious. The coroner’s office delayed shipping for weeks.
*My son’s autopsy report was released about October 23, 2016. Nearly 4 months and 3 weeks after his death.
*A letter to preserve was sent to the coroner on November 23, 2016.
**This is very important I left Jake’s body at the coroner extra days, over 2 weeks. Jake died on the 8th, I did not cremate until the June 22.
*I called the corner everyday telling them to take EXTRA samples of every and a lot of them before I cremated. Dianne Fairman assured me and said, don’t worry Caroline we took a bunch of samples you can cremate not worry.
IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED MY SON’S TISSUE SAMPLES WHEREABOUTS ARE UNKNOWN!!
In a previous post. I included emails to coroner. Below you will find screen shots of text messages with the corner spanning from June 2016 to October 2016. I put the last texts first, when I knew something was going terribly wrong:
CORRUPTION AND CORONER’S APPEARS TO BE MORE COMMON THAN PEOPLE REALIZE, ESPECIALLY AROUND A WRONGFUL DEATH THAT TOOK PLACE IN A HOSPITAL.
CORONERS & CORRUPTION
It may come as a surprise to you, but accidental deaths occur in American hospitals at an alarming rate. At the end of 1999, the highly respected (“IOM”), a division of the National Academy of Sciences, issued a report in which it estimated that there are 98,000 accidental deaths in American hospitals each year, equating to about 15% of the hospital population. That means that there may be about 15,000 accidental deaths per year in hospitals in America.
Ninety-Eight Thousand accidental deaths is more than twice as many as the number of people killed by cars. It’s as if 400 Boeing jets- each with about 250 passengers went down every year. Imagine the fervor over that.
One of the reasons that the accidental death rate is so high and why there is no public outcry is Hospitals, doctors, and nurses keep a lid on it. If word got out, that would be “bad for business.” Secrecy and “double-record keeping” are encouraged by state laws that, in almost all states, forbid disclosure of any of the information gathered in a process known as “peer review.” This takes place in a hospital after a patient death or injury that has been caused by a mistake. Doctors, nurses and hospital administrators look at what happened and try to prevent it from occurring again, but because the process is secret, there is no independent, public review of the accident’s causes or of the medical establishment’s remedy.
While state and federal laws require that a patient’s true course and treatment be recorded in the patient’s medical records, when a mistake results in death or injury, the patients’ medical records are routinely rewritten, or information about what happened is omitted from the patient’s record, or both.
The result is “double record keeping.” There are the peer review records, which accurately reflect what occurred; and there are the patient’s records, which are usually falsified.
The report, To Err Is Human, describes a “culture of secrecy” which envelops these tragic mistakes. Because of this secrecy, the Institute could only estimate the number of accidental deaths in hospitals. Neither the Institute nor anyone, else knows the true number of accidental deaths which occur in hospitals in the United States. County Coroners and County Medical Examiners play a role in keeping accidental deaths in hospitals secret. Coroners are charged by law to investigate accidental or suspicious deaths on behalf of the public. Public knowledge of why someone has died is extremely important in a democratic society. If a person can die from undisclosed causes, individual liberty is at risk. A hallmark of totalitarian societies is the fact that a person may lose his life without public knowledge of the true circumstances of death.
With regard to accidental deaths which occur in hospitals, however, Coroners are first and foremost politicians. They are elected office holders, and no politician ever fattened his campaign coffers or won votes by wrangling with hospitals and doctors. Hospitals are generally loved by the community, and they are also large employers. Physicians comprise one of the most powerful interest groups in our society. A Coroner who attempts to expose an accidental death that a hospital wants to conceal will not win any friends.
Further, Coroners usually do not have any kind of medical degree. They are not “forensic pathologists.” Forensic pathology is the study of human tissues and fluids to determine the cause of death. Because Coroners are not professional forensic pathologists, they are unlikely to have the same degree of professional interest in the science of forensic pathology as physicians who have trained for several years in that science. A Coroner may lack the wherewithal to determine whether the forensic pathology being performed by the Coroner’s Department agents on behalf of the public is adequate. While citizens can be certain that their County Coroner wants to assist law enforcement in apprehending and convicting criminals, they can be just as certain that their County Coroner will be very reluctant and very unlikely to apply the same diligence in trying to discover that a patient died from a mistake in a hospital. Here are some examples of what I am talking about.
