Homeless Person Deaths

John L'Etoile filed this request with the Clark County Coroner's Office of Clark County, NV.


From: John L'Etoile

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Nevada Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

(1) A list of all individuals processed who did not have a permanent address at the time of death (homeless individuals)
(2) Autopsy records and coroner's notes of previously stated individuals

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Hello Mr. L'Etoile,

We have received your request and I will generate a list of all individuals who we believe were homeless at their death. Can you please tell me what time period you were looking for?

In reference to your second request, what type of autopsy records are you inquiring about and what are you referring to when you requested
"coroner's notes"?

I'll await your response.

Dear Nicole,

Thank you for responding so promptly to my request. I am looking for records from 2015-2018, and by coroner's notes I am referring to the reported cause of death, any noticeable extraneous circumstances that may have led to the cause of death, or any other autopsy records I may not be aware of. Thank you in advance for your compliance!

I have a separate records request from Michelle Laquindanum with your organization, and I think we are not the correct agency to provide what she is looking for. However, she did not include a phone number in her email.
Do you have a phone number for her, or a main phone number for Muckrock?
