The following statement may be attributed to Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow:
“On behalf of the entire Will County State’s Attorney’s Office, I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of Dr. Bryan Mitchell on his sudden passing.
Dr. Mitchell was a consummate professional whose skillful work as a forensic pathologist enabled us to successfully prosecute many murder cases in Will County over the past decade. He was a compassionate and insightful colleague, and he will be greatly missed. With regard to pending cases in Will County, Illinois statute clearly provides prosecutors with the ability to enter an autopsy protocol at trial in the event of a pathologist’s death.”
