Starke County Coroner Receives Certification


Starke County’s coroner has received his state certification. Dannie Hoffer Jr. says he’s finished the required Medicolegal Death Investigators training and is now certified through the Indiana State Coroners Training Board. He was elected to the position in September of last year, following the resignation of Adam Gray.

Hoffer says the next step is to get his deputies certified, “At the present time, I’ve got three deputy coroners that are down in Indianapolis this week going through their training, so we will have four legal death investigators in Starke County.”

Hoffer says he’s also handing the coroner’s duties in Pulaski County this week while their coroner is going through training of his own.
