46. The coroner having jurisdiction in the place where the dead body has been found or is presumed to be shall conduct the investigation. In the case of the first paragraph of section 43, the coroner having jurisdiction in the place where the body is to be buried or cremated shall conduct the investigation.
Where the complexity of the causes or the circumstances of death so require or where the coroner who had been responsible for conducting the investigation is unable to do so, the Chief Coroner may designate another coroner to conduct the investigation or to complete it.
