Interviews Regarding the Death

Standard operating procedure of the jurisdiction dictates who should be interviewed and by whom. Interviews should include basic information such as the subject's identification, clothing, time, date, and state of wellness when last seen alive, date and time the body was discovered, and medical, employment, and social history. Also important are any recent events that may have a bearing on the death. A death investigator should always ask if the decedent had recently been involved in any potentially harmful situations. This information may be extremely helpful if later attempts are made to make a prior incident a contributing factor in the death. If suicide is suspected, it is preferable to interview family members and close friends as soon as possible after the death is discovered. This may preclude guilt-related, subconscious, erroneous statements made by loved ones several days later.
