Scientific Cadaver Transport
Nearly a decade ago Coroner Northrup was contacted by the University of Illinois College of Medicine. The medical college inquired if the coroner's office would be able to assist the medical college by transporting cadavers from Chicago, Illinois to the medical college.
Coroner Northrup devised a plan to transport scientific cadavers from Chicago, Illinois to Champaign-Urbana that year and has provided transportation every year since. After 3-4 years, Coroner Northrup obtained and utilized grant funds to purchase a mass fatality/disaster response trailer for the coroner's office that serves as the transport medium for the scientific cadavers as well.
