Autopsy reports are public record under the Colorado Public Records Act, 30-10-601. Family may receive a free copy of the autopsy report.
If you should desire an autopsy report, we require a written request from you. This request needs to include your name, relationship to the deceased, name of deceased, date of death and information to get the report back to you including address and phone number. If you would like the report faxed to you, please include the fax number. Autopsy reports may take anywhere from four weeks to twelve weeks to be finalized, depending upon the nature of the case and any additional testing that may be performed. Homicide autopsy reports are not released without written approval from the District Attorney’s office. Requests can be mailed to the office, faxed to us at 719-390-2462 or emailed to SandyWay@elpasoco.com
