N.H. Chief Medical Examiner to Retire After 20 Years


The state’s Chief Medical Examiner is retiring after two decades on the job.

When Dr. Thomas Andrew assumed the role in 1997, the office's caseload was 900 a year. That number has since doubled, in large part because of the state’s ongoing opioid crisis.

In a statement Monday, Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said Dr. Andrew brought “dedication, professionalism and the highest quality of work to the position.”

Andrew will be stepping down on October 1st and Deputy Chief Jenny Duval will take over.
