So Many Dead Bodies, Indianapolis Coroner's Office Out of Space

So Many Dead Bodies, Indianapolis Coroner's Office Out of Space
21 Comments

There are so many dead bodies in the Coroner's Office that handles Indianapolis, they need more space and more staff to do Autopsies!  Coronavirus? They won't say!

Marion County Indiana Deputy Chief Coroner Alfarena Ballew said they are forced to take the victims' bodies to a storage space at Indiana University.

Unfortunately, the lack of space is not the only issue the coroner's office is facing right now.

"What happens is, we're at capacity with the number of cases that we get, but we only have a limited number of pathologists who can perform those autopsies," Ballew explained. "We typically have to carry cases over for the next day, and sometimes it takes us about four days to get completely caught up with performing autopsies and doing examinations."

Ballew said the goal is for families to receive information from the exams and autopsies along with their loved ones' bodies within 24 hours. To do that, they would need five forensic pathologists. They currently have two.

"When we're at capacity and working the large number of cases that we have, I mean, you're talking about burn outs, you're talking about the inability to complete as many autopsies as we can in order to move the cases along for the decedents to be released to families," Ballew noted.

When asked how many of the dead are from Coronavirus, the Coroner's office declined to answer.

    This time we may have jumped the gun. An Indianapolis friend of mine showed me 8 articles with multiple deaths by homicide recently, resulting almost 30 bodies to deal with. Also their staff is down to 2 techs.
    Explained as far as I'm concerned. It's not coronavirus.

    "CORONAVIRUS IS OVER
    Here is what will probably be the final outline of this hoax
    My original assessment right in the beginning was that the Coronavirus was a basically harmless virus that gave people the sniffles. Now that the cruise ship has played out to more than 550 infected with zero deaths it does not seem plausible that any of it was real, and that instead, China, which definitely had six figure deaths, was merely using a virus as cover for killing dissidents.
    There were definitely orders for millions of body bags, and the crematoriums were definitely maxed out. how many were actually culled is anyones' guess, hopefully awareness of how Communists tend to behave has muted the actions against dissidents, as did my suspicions about a culling which I spread widely, not only here."

      I might believe you except family has seen many dead everyone sick . This is not a hoax or joke. And I am sure the commies are using this as an excuse to eliminate opposition when opportunity arises. But it is not a hoax

    Problems were going on last year as well. Also a rise in fentanyl laced drug over doses.

    Local hardware store told me that they will not be getting any more 95 masks in. They contacted the manufacturer and they will not be getting any deliveries to the hardware store in the foreseeable future. Sorry I’m not telling y’all what hardware store I’m talking about LMAO

    Usually reporters are ready to fling themselves in harms way. But when it came to Cherynobyl, Fukashima, or this... Forget about it.

    "Official" data is all bullshit. Just look at Johns Hopkins Coronavirus data page. On the left, they list all the infections by country. Except for ONE exception. Included with the list of nations, is the cruise liner Diamond Princess because JAPAN refuses to "own" that it's docked and being treated in its country. They don't want to claim all the infected they are removing and treating so an not to panic their citizens nor jeopardize anything to include the Olympics. Like I said, a bunch of bullshit.

      John Hopkins was involved in that Event 201 Simulation Exercise that Simulated an outbreak such as this a few month prior.

    Now this corona virus thing will get quite surreal. I am betting that they will withhold the "cure", this drug chloroquine, or sabotage its' production and censor all mention of it as a way to recover. If it does get out that it works, they will say it requires a year of testing or something like that, or they will tie this drug to a few deaths and say it doesn't work anymore. Anyway, my feeling that the apocalypse may still be on. Maybe we can get a few vials of the drug for ourselves. Let's see how this plays out. I'm back to prepping again. Did feel liberated for an hour or two until I realized that the Powers That Be control the narrative on this one and now it could be even more maddening since there is a simple cure, apparently. Will they allow it to be used? We will soon find out.

    Researchers at KU Leuven in Belgium have discovered that the existing malaria drug chloroquine works against COVID-19, the disease caused by the corona virus. NU.nl reports this.
    The drug chloroquine has been on the market since 1934. In 2004 the Belgian professor Marc van Ranst discovered that the medicine works against SARS. He wondered if it would work against the current coronavirus 2019-nCoV. That turned out to be the case.

    In ten hospitals in Beijing, Hunan and Guangdong, the malaria drug has been tested on patients infected with the COVID-19 corona virus. Experts from the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology reported Monday that the drug works.

    In the patients who were given chloroquine for a week, the fever decreased and the lung function improved. Soon they were virus-free and cured, reports KU Leuven. It is the first time that there is a means by which corona patients can be cured. For this, doctors could only combat the symptoms of the virus.

    The malaria agent can be used until a vaccine against the corona virus is available. However, it will take another two years for the vaccine to be applied to humans. "Fortunately, chloroquine can be produced easily and cheaply in large quantities," says Van Randst.

      Sounds like the Apocalypse has just been cancelled. However, I wonder who will buy out this company and bury it in favor of a harder-to-produce, less-effective Corona Virus Vaccine that you must subscribe yourself and your kids to for your entire lifespan.

      So does this mean the Corona Virus crisis is over now? Are the Powers that Be going to allow this simple, easy to implement, cheap Chloroquine drug solution to end their big world take-over exercise?

    Hal, I just called their coroner office and spoke to their receptionist for 2 minutes and I decided not to bring up the coronavirus situation. Instead, I asked what was the reason for having not enough spa e for the bodies and the woman told me that they didn't have any shortage of space. I then asked why is CBS news reporting that they have too many bodies that need autopsies and they had a shortage of space. The woman asked me who I was and I told her just a concerned tax paying citizen. She then told me that there have just been an increase in body count and I asked what the majority of bodies were brought in for and she said homicides "we have had alot of homicides." I asked how many homicides have there been she tells me 33 since the beginning of the year she said some have been already completed some have not. When I asked how many other cases she has besides homicides she told me she wouldn't be able to know the exact number without checking other things. I decided not to press further. I find it hilarious the number given is 33 the number always associated with you know what. 33 homicides if that was factual doesn't seem too hard to believe for a month and half but out of all the numbers she could give I mean come on 33! Please let me know what you think.

      Maybe that is the case. I see there are some recent issues, and also Marion County Indiana is overall trending up.


      Expert: Indianapolis violent crime trend not different from other Midwest cities - WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather | Indiana Traffic: https://www.wishtv.com/news/crime-watch-8/expert-indianapolis-violent-crime-trend-not-different-from-other-midwest-cities/
      “The national homicide rate per 100,000 people hovers around five people per 100,000. Indianapolis, Marion County, sits around 18 right now, 18 people per 100,000 so we are significantly above the national average,” said Indiana University associate professor Natalie Hipple.

      Hipple’s research shows, that jump didn’t happen over night. She says Indianapolis has been on a slow and steady increase for violent crime over the last decade.

    We the people will not be told anything by our corrupt government until the orders are issued that a quarantine of a major city is announced, then it will be too late to prepare to survive the pandemic and the illegal actions of government bureaucrats. Those of us that survive this episode need ti implement street justice across the spectrum and start it over with new rules and limited government.

    Such situations are not unprecedented.
    This article provides an example from 2016 in Los Angeles.

    Declined to answer? WTF? A simple no would have sufficed. Instead they give a tacit yes. By the way. Indiana University has a huge medical school. What a coincidence that the corpses were sent there.

    We need more information: For instance, the wording makes this sound like an old problem. If it's been going on for the last year, it probably isn't relevant to the current Sars-CoV-2 virus.

    Also, do any of you (reading this) live in that area? If this IS new, getting video of the overage of bodies would be an incredible tool to aid others in waking up. We aren't in China! If they lie to us, we WILL prove it and put the information out.

    This is America. If the come in masks, in the night, to kidnap people, they will be met with a wall of lead.

      I think the Chinese quickly learned that they are unable to feed all the people in public quarantine, so they told them to barricade themselves in. "WINTER, er WUHAN is COMING!"

        This particular story appears to stem from the high murder rate in Indianapolis. I believe it. The Corona virus when it hits will just overload the crematoriums. Watch for that story.

        I think watching Japan, because of their proximity to China, and how densely packed their cities are, and their Honor at being precise. If those death rates start to climb there, then that will be the next canary in the coal mine.
