CONCORD - Dr. Thomas Andrew is retiring after 20 years as New Hampshire’s chief medical examiner.
Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announced Andrew’s retirement in a release Monday.
“We thank Dr. Andrew for his service and we wish him and his family all the best in the years to come,” MacDonald said in the release.
Andrew took the job in September 1997. According to the release, the medical examiner caseload was about 900 per year when Andrew started and has more than doubled in the 20 years since.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, a unit of the New Hampshire Department of Justice, is responsible for determining the cause and manner of sudden, unexpected or unnatural deaths.
