Sounds like Newton County Needs a New Coroner

Newton County’s coroner, Doretha Bailey-Butts, has been on the job for a short time, but she’s managed to cause enough problems that the county is seeking to remove her. The problems include the alleged mishandling of at least one scene of death and an alleged attempt of extortion. Part of the problem is how Georgia approaches the coroner system and the minimal requirements for the position. Maybe it’s time for some serious changes.
