CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire’s chief medical examiner is retiring after 20 years.
Attorney General Gordon MacDonald says when Dr. Thomas Andrew started his job, the caseload was about 900 a year. That number has more than doubled, due to population growth and the drug crisis.
In addition to helping the attorney general’s office in prosecuting homicides, Andrew has compiled and published data on untimely deaths. He also has been a member of the New Hampshire Suicide Prevention Council and has served on many fatality review committees.
