From its inception in March 1956 until 1 Feb. 1974, the Dade County Medical Examiner's Office by statute  was charged with the medical investigation of all sex crimes, including rape, sodomy, and “any criminal sex offenses.” A system set up for this purpose, although slightly disorganized, became operational and appeared to function fairly well. The medical examiner's office performed three functions: managing a telephone answering and calling service for the various doctors on the panel, acting as a fiscal agent for the doctors in submitting their monthly bills to the proper county office, and serving as a central repository for the official reports. Office personnel, although regarding the unit as contrary to the usual functions of medicolegal death investigations, fulfilled their responsibilities.
Deputy medical examiner, Dade County, Fla.
