Why do toxicity tests take weeks?
Why would it take eight to 12 weeks to look for chemicals/poisons/drugs after a death?
In today’s paper there’s a story about a man found dead, with no obvious cause. “An autopsy Monday was inconclusive”.
OK, understandable. But the next step is “toxicology test results, which could take eight to 12 weeks, a medical examiner’s spokesman said.”
