A busy Oconee coroner’s office
In mid-October, an infant’s death, classified a homicide, started a period of two and a half weeks of one call after another for the office of Oconee County Coroner. In all, Coroner Karl Addis reports 23 calls. And those calls have included all kinds of death–from natural death all the way to homicide. The Oconee County coroner since 1993, Addis would be hard-pressed to recall a busier time for him and his assistants.
