Arizona 2019: Medical Examiner persuaded not to perform an invasive autopsy

Jerry Searcy, a non-confidential neuropreservation member became Alcor's 167th patient on March 24, 2019, in Scottsdale, AZ. Jerry had been an Alcor member since 1979 and was a very active volunteer. His death was sudden and unexpected as Jerry seemed to be in good health for his age. Fortunately, the medical examiner released him to us without any damaging autopsy. It is not known how long the period of ischemia was, other than it cannot have been more than 24 hours.
