What Happens When You Can't Trust the Medical Examiner?

Recently the Fresno Bee (newspaper for one of the biggest cities in California's Central Valley) addressed the fact that many of the medical examiners (the guys who do the autopsies) were incompetent. Some had no training at all for doing autopsies, and one had no medical training at all.

Many autopsies had been botched. The writer didn't really say how the dilemma would be solved. When we watch TV shows it seems that during the autopsy is when all the clues are found that help them catch the murderer. So now I wonder how many murders are going unsolved in Fresno because of this problem.

Light bulb moment! This could be used in a mystery, right? Probably not, who would believe it.
