Re: “Vermont's Medical Examiner Knows What's Killing Us

Dear Ken,
I thank you for the kind words. However, I must point out that I am only a part of a system. The countless people who are part of every investigation are the true heroes who make it work. Our 50 or so investigators, who leave there families at all hours, in all weather conditions are the backbone of death investigation in VT. I can't say enough about these selfless professionals who are on the front lines. Our state of the art facility and expanded storage was made possible through the support of FAHC. The funeral directors who do our transportation at all hours, the prosecutors and defense attorneys who make sure we are protecting everyones rights, the support staff from Public Health and Safety, the physicians who give there expertise freely, the students who keep asking questions and the legislators who wrote our wonderful law are the real reason VT has arguably one of the best systems in the country. I don't consider our work "mundane" what I said was in death investigation, the mundane trumps the spectacular. The sudden death of a loved one is what we do on a daily basis, without public accolade and that is were the satisfaction lies. Most people only think of us only during the spectacular, the fiery crash, the homicides, the burning buildings. I feel very privileged to lead this system, but understand that many others make me look good.
