There are four (4) elected Coroners in Wyoming County:

Michael Smith, Wyoming
Renee Hill, Attica
Neil Williams, Arcade
Dr. Jennifer Prutsman-Pfeiffer, Attica

A County Coroner is responsible to respond to the scene of an incident in order to perform preliminary investigation on cause and manner of death. The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department dispatches the Coroners. In certain instances, a case may be referred to the Monroe County Medical Examiner (ME) for comprehensive medicolegal death investigation services including autopsy and post-mortem toxicology, if applicable. The Coroners also play a role in developing the county’s Mass casualty/Fatality Plan in preparation for any catastrophic incidents, which could be caused by natural, accidental, criminal or infectious means.

For Coroner inquiries, contact the Wyoming County Health Department during business hours from Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 4:30pm: (585) 786-8890
