Additional statement regarding release of Andres Guardado Pineda report 150 150 Medical Examiner-Coroner

July 10, 2020

The Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner’s sole mission and purpose is to provide independent, evidence-based death investigations to the public. We value our political neutrality and reject any characterization to the contrary.

Our office is separate from any law enforcement agency in Los Angeles County and has the authority and discretion to make its own independent decisions on death investigations and the release of information.

In the interest of transparency and supporting the administration of justice, the department continues to stand by its decision to release the Andres Guardado Pineda autopsy report today.
