Episode Summary

A Deadly Business

Dr. G's first case as a medical examiner is profiled. In 1988 when Dr. G began working in Jacksonville, Florida, numerous decomposing bodies were found in a funeral home. Investigators believed that the funeral home director had neglected to bury bodies that he had been paid to bury. Investigators also suspected that he had been burying multiple bodies in the single coffins. After Dr. G opened four exhumed coffins and confirmed that multiple bodies had indeed been stuffed into single coffins, she had to identify the bodies as bodies the funeral director had been paid to bury and find evidence that he had treated the bodies improperly.

A 56-year-old man dies suddenly and unexpectedly at home, and the hospital does not know the cause of death. The man suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder due to serving in the Vietnam war. The man had also been experiencing chest pains, which the hospital had dismissed as symptoms of panic attacks. Dr. G must do an autopsy to find out if the hospital missed a key diagnosis that could have saved the man's life.
