Orleans Parish (La.) Coroner's Office.
Record of inquests and views, 1844-1904.
. . . the Coroner has
been responsible for receiving bodies of persons who died under
"unusual" circumstances. The historical context of "unusual" has changed
since the office of Coroner was first created in 1805, and an exact
definition of what constituted a Coroner's case at a given point in time
is lacking. One can expect, however, to find records relating to
accidental deaths, to murders and suicides, to dead persons discovered
in public places, and the like.
