Per Utah Code 26-4-17(2), reports can only be released to and findings discussed with a decedent’s immediate relative, legal guardian of the deceased or a personal representative of the deceased’s estate, attending physician, criminal attorneys, or law enforcement representatives having jurisdiction.

As per this requirement, we cannot discuss with the media any details of a specific case.  For general topics and news stories that do not pertain to a particular death investigation, please coordinate your request through the Depart of Health Public Information Officer.
