    (1926- )
    Chief M.E. for Los Angeles County (1967-1982)
    Nicknamed the 'Coroner to the Stars'
    President of the National Association of Medical Examiners (1982-1983)
    Whenever he did a celebrity autopsy, it had a more sinister spin than given by eyewitnesses. For example, he said William Holden and Natalie Wood died inebriated.
    Local politicians did not appreciate his openness about his inquests. This, coupled with the Wood findings, led to him being exiled for 17 years in the pathology department of the hospital basement.
    He told Associated Press, 'I have no qualms about anything I said during that period. What do I care? I don't need to adjust the facts for some political reason.'
    He stepped down as chief coroner in 1982.
    He graduated Nippon Medical School in 1951.
    He was widely regarded as the role model for the title character in 'Quincy, M.E.'
    His press conferences were juicy and highly telling.
    His 1983 memoir 'Coroner' was a best-seller.
    At the time of his retirement, he spent literally more than half his life at his job.
    Folk singer Phranc sung about him in her song 'Noguchi.'
