Meeting the "Medical Examiner to the Stars"


Hey guys! We just returned week before last from the American Academy of Forensic Science meeting, this year in Seattle.  We had a great meeting, and had the opportunity to debut Walk of Death to over 200 forensic odontologists from all across the United States and the world.  The presentation was most successful.  While in Seattle, I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Tom Nogushi, affectionately known as the "medical examiner to the stars."

Dr. Nogushi served for almost 20 years in the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office and performed autopsies for many of Hollywood's famous residents.  Some of his more notable autopsies were performed on celebrities like John Belushi, Janis Joplin, Sharon Tate, Robert F. Kennedy, and Marilyn Monroe.  What a wonderfully delightful gentleman, still willing and hungry to share and teach to all who are interested. He is still a very active and spry 87 years old.

I am proud to have been able to have met Dr. Nogushi, one of the most famous individuals in the field of forensic science!
