Beleaguered Cook County Medical Examiner Nancy Jones is expected to announce her retirement Tuesday

Sources confirm Jones had been considering retirement since January, when the paper first revealed the problems that one morgue staffer described as “sacrilegious.” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle — whose office oversees operations at the morgue — blasted management there.

When the problems were revealed, Preckwinkle dispatched her top aides to investigate and soon called for an overhaul of operations to ensure the delay in indigent burials — one of the problems causing the crowded conditions — were scheduled more regularly and that the body cooler was checked for cleanliness.

At the time, Jones said the 300-capacity cooler was overloaded because of financial woes — namely the state curbing funding that covered the costs of burying the poor. That funding has been restored. Preckwinkle agreed, but still cited management problems.

In the meantime, the county’s independent inspector general also launched a probe, as did the state’s labor department after complaints were made about working conditions at the morgue, 2121 W. Harrison. The inspector general’s findings could be released in a report as soon as this week, sources say.

In the days after the newspaper reported the crowding issues and staff complaints about bodily fluids pooling on the floor of the cooler — a health hazard — a stiff-lipped Preckwinkle pointed the finger at Jones.

This poor woman took the fall. Racist Preckwinkle blamed it all on Nancy. The blame lays square on the administrative manager but she is a friend of Preckwinkles.

Burr oak cemetery grave desecration and double stacking bodies, Tristate crematory Nobles Georgia failing to cremate bodies-disposed of over 280 bodies by dumping in the adjacent woods and pond, Serenity Gardens funeral home, Gary Indiana 4 bodies left in abandoned funeral home found 4 years later after building sold at tax sale.

Do you know what the common thread is with all these incidents?
Niggers were left in charge of the dead, face it folks they can't be trusted to take care of the living and now they think they can be trusted with the dead.

It has gotten to be such a problem with the bereaved going to the Medical Examiner;'s Office just issued a memo to the Detective Division on rules for viewing of the deceased.

No more tha four family members will be allowed to view the body.

Bodies may be viewed for identification p[urposes only from 1200-2000.

Bodies will only be shown only one time for identification purposes on homicides and for all unidentified persons.

There will be no exceptions to this policy.

Personal property of all decseased can be picked up by family members from 1200-1600, Monday through Friday.

At times there would be dozens of gang members cuaing problems down there demanding to see the body.

Ask any homicide detective and they will tell you that Nancy Jones was a class act. Her office was filled with political hacks and she could do nothing about it.

Fucking preckwinkle is an incompetent boob and you are very correct in assuming that a nigger will replace Jones.

When I was in the academy Nancy Jones spoke to my class. She spent most of the time talking about how all the Chicago police officers that call the M.E. office for notifications are morons. The rest of the time she spent threatening to have our instructors punish us if she caught us looking at the clock or if she thought we looked disinterested while she was speaking....... Seemed like a nice lady. I hope everything works out for her.

Sad.

Nancy testified at a number of my murder trials, and she is responsible for helping us send a number of offenders to prison. She is good people.

She'll be missed by the Det Division. She was always available to discuss cases. Brilliant doctor, very pleasant, very professional.

FED-UP Taxpayer said...

Cook County is so full of incompetent bureaucrats. Was Jones really the fall-guy or is it just the changing-of-the-guard?

Another bureaucrat just walks away - but STILL collects a big pension.

Who is accountable? Who gets any type of reprimand or suspension (Without pay)?

Something or someone F's up, just waltz in someone new and give the last person a big pension as they walk away from the spotlight.

Let's start cancelling pensions and cutting salaries for a job NOT well-done. Maybe then, people will take their job more seriously.

Nancy Jones is regarded as the best Medical Examiner in the profession. She is a national authority on Crib/Baby death and has never been criticized for incompetence. She is the best I have seen in over thirty years in the Detective Division. To lose her because of a political hack is a crime.

That lady looks like a near corpse! Retire now or become one of the customers it seems.

Stress from working under PRICKWIGGLE (cause the old les coon had one!) to account for that?

I feel sorry for her.
She is a victim of Stroger who packed the place with political hacks while she was just a firgure head.
The cut the budget so much, I doubt they have clean sheet in the place. On PO told me they re-use body bags!
I do hope that they do not go with the usual racial nonsense ( the place is 99% minority ) and pick the best person for the job and give them some of the budget back.
This place, which was once a showplace, is now know as the worst large city mourge in the US.

I Voted For Obama said...

Toni Preckwinkle voted for Obama, then promised him that she would mess with all the competent personnel in order to get Obama voters in.

Prickwrinkles is just another Abject Failure as CROOK County [DEMOCOMMUNIST] Board Leader. What else is new? Too bad all the good Taxpayers of the City and Crook County have to pay for the ghetto hellhole aka. the Bowels of CROOK County, Shitcago, and all of its Democommunist-Created problems and gross mismanagement and Theft of Tax Dollars for Decades and Decades.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your posts on countenance.wordpress.com . Thanks!

I'll agree that she is a class act. She just couldn't control all of the dark folks that worked for her. The same employees that called the treatment of the bodies "sacrilegious" are some of the laziest, incompetent monkeys you will ever meet, especially the head intake coordinator who was arrested last year in a prostitution sting.

Foot Fetish Cop said...

I'll decline on commenting on Nancy's feet. Never had carnal knowledge of them. I may be a foot freak of the first order, but I also know when to be a professional.

However, putting my cop hat on for a minute, there is no finer pathologist that could provide testimony at a murder trial. Nancy nailed it every time.

I believe that she dated 1-2 coppers over the years, and may be from a police family.

The sad thing is that Nancy had no control over the indigent burial funds. She told me that she repeatedly went to the administration to tell them of the problem, but they chose not to listen. It is simple laws of physics. lots of bodies fill the coolers and when there is no more room they spill over.

Combine this with the fact that some of the lazy fat assed keffers that they got working down there nigging up the joint, and there you have it.

In fairness, they DO have many good people who work there. It is an awful place. NOTHING happy comes out of there. You go to work everyday cutting open stinking rotting diseased shot-up flesh. This does not bode well with most normal human beings.

All the best to you Nancy.

Where were the families who had so much to complain about, but never came to pick up and bury their "loved" ones? I agree with the post who said after 7 days cremate them!
