Dr. Steven Hayne Is Done


My sources in Mississippi tell me that tomorrow afternoon the new commissioner of the state's Department of Public Safety will announce that embattled medical examiner Dr. Steven Hayne will be removed from the state's list of approved medical examiners.

Which means he'll no longer be performing autopsies in Mississippi.  There may be other sanctions in the works, too.

There's a press conference scheduled for 1:30pm CT.

Read my long investigative piece on Hayne from reason's October issue here.  My follow-up reporting on Hayne here.
