An open house Saturday at Marion County Coroner's Open House offered rather unconventional, yet educational way to spend pre-Halloween weekend. The event gave a chance for the public to meet Coroner Dr.Frank P Lloyd, Jr., MD and his staff, tour the facilities and learn the role of the Coroner's office in death investigations.

There are on average 9000 deaths each year in Marion County. The Coroner's office performs 1500 to 1700 autopsies per year, determining both cause of death and manner of death.

A mock crime scene for visitors to solve, informational presentations and games were all part of the day's activities. In addition to brochures and reading material, wrist bands and toe tags were provided for visitors to take home.
