Connecticut Chief Medical Examiner's Office loses accreditation

The Chief Medical Examiner's Office in Connecticut has lost full accreditation because of low staffing and inadequate refrigerated storage space for bodies.

Chief Medical Examiner James Gill says there are plans to add refrigerated storage space, but the legislature and governor need to approve funding for more staff.
