Who can I speak to about a death investigation?

To inquire about a death investigation, you may contact our office at 262-741-4729. Our normal business hours are Monday through Friday. Please provide your name, the name of the deceased, the date of death (actual or approximate), and your relationship to the deceased when calling.

Keep in mind that, while we do our best to keep families informed, we may not be able to answer all questions if the investigation is incomplete or if release of information would compromise an active criminal investigation.
