How do I obtain personal effects and items taken into evidence?
These items have been inventoried and logged within 24 hours and you may call this office to make arrangements to pick up these items in person or to have them shipped to you. This office is not responsible for items found in vehicles or residences. Generally, what is inventoried are items used to assist in identification such as papers, wallet, cell phones, or jewelry found with the deceased. Clothing will be inventoried and may be released to the funeral home. Occasionally clothing needs to be held as evidence for further investigation. Clothing that presents a health hazard (blood or otherwise) will be disposed of for the safety of all persons involved.
