CALGARY — Alberta Justice says it will review files handled by a former employee in the Calgary medical examiner’s office.
The department says there were inaccurate autopsy results in a possible criminal case that raised doubts about a forensic pathologist’s work.
The Calgary Police Service had requested a review of the autopsy.
A prosecutor has been assigned to go through all the criminal files the pathologist has been involved in.
The priority will be to review cases currently before the courts, followed by cases that have already been concluded.
The pathologist was with the medical examiner’s office for two years before leaving earlier this month.
The office conducts investigations into deaths that occur suddenly or cannot be explained.
