How to request an autopsy report
All autopsy and investigative reports generated by the Fond du Lac County Medical Examiner’s Office are available by specific request, under the WI open records law. In order to receive a copy of an autopsy report, we require that a written request be mailed, faxed or filled out in person, with the following information provided:
- Date of request
- The decedent’s name and date of death
- The requestor’s mailing address
- The requestor’s daytime contact phone number
- The requestor’s printed name AND signature on the request
Email requests will not be accepted.
Requestors will be notified when the report is completed.
Reports may be picked up at the Fond du Lac County Medical Examiner’s Office during normal office hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., except for official county holidays.
A charge of $90.00 will be assessed for each copy of an autopsy report, with the exception of the immediate next of kin, who will be provided a single copy, free of charge, upon request.
Checks should be made payable to the “Fond du Lac County Medical Examiner’s Office” and mailed/delivered to the office address. Payment must be received before a report is mailed; however, payment should not be sent until you have been notified of the report's completion.
