If you request in-person pick up of the Autopsy Report, the Records Department will notify you when the Report is ready. You may contact the OCME Records Department Monday thru Friday 8am to 5pm by calling 212-323-1777. If you leave a voice message, please clearly state your full name, and provide a phone number where you can be reached during Records Department hours.
Final Autopsy Reports can take weeks to several months to finalize due to the detailed studies that may be performed. Note that the District Attorney must approve release of case material when the Manner of Death is deemed by the medical examiner to be a homicide.
Please note: each person requesting an autopsy report should submit only one request.
