Kittitas (pronounced 'KITT-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
The Kittitas County Coroner’s Office aims to protect the interests of the community. This is
achieved in our death investigations by determining the cause, manner, and mechanism of
sudden or unexplained deaths, and by identifying deceased persons. Our office notifies next of
kin, while ensuring the deceased and their property are treated with care, respect, and dignity.
We accomplish our mission with medicolegal-trained investigators, forensically certified
pathologists, and through other scientific methods. We search for the truth by providing an
independent investigation with respect to concerns of the family and in accordance with the law.
We understand our findings may also impact law enforcement, criminal justice, and public health
