STEVE CINA, MD, FCAP, D-ABMDI
FORMER CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER, COOK COUNTY IL
I am honored to endorse Steve Hanks for the position of Coroner for Larimer County, Colorado.
I have had the good fortune to work with Steve both at the Larimer County Coroner/Medical Examiner’s Office and currently at the Adams County Coroner’s Office. He is an expert at autopsy performance and has been an invaluable assistant to me. He is currently finishing law school and soon will be an attorney.
Steve knows that performing autopsies is only a fraction of proper medicolegal death investigation. As the word medicolegal implies, death investigation is both a medical and legal pursuit. Steve has mastered the medical part of the job; he soon will complete his training to be a legal expert as well.
Larimer County has always had a forensic pathologis as coroner, but times are changing. Given the legal complexity of running an Office serving a large county, Steve’s education will serve him well as Coroner. As an attorney, his interactions with the Public Defender, District Attorney, Law Enforcement, and the Public at Large will be seamless.
I am confident that Steve Hanks will run the Larimer County Coroner/Medical Examiner’s Office with efficiency, professionalism, integrity and compassion. You will be in good hands with Steve Hanks as Coroner.
