Coroner candidates discuss need for autopsies

Bartholomew County Republican voters will be choosing between two candidates for county coroner in this year’s election, after long-time county coroner Larry Fisher decided not to run for re-election.

Funeral home director Ron Shadley is facing Columbus police patrolman Clayton Nolting.

We asked the candidates:
