Lubbock County Commissioners Appoint New Interim Medical Examiner

Lubbock County Commissioners were forced to make another change Monday regarding the interim medical examiner.

Earlier this month, County Commissioners appointed Dr. Randall Frost, following the termination Dr. Jerry Spencer. Spencer's actions came into question following a complaint made by a co-worker, alleging that he was improperly storing breast implants and an intrauterine device removed during an autopsy.

Dr. Frost is based in San Antonio, and has since asked that his name be removed from consideration.

Commissioners have now appointed Lubbock's own deputy medical examiner, Dr. Sridar Natarajan.

"We're fully expecting Dr. Natarajan to step in," said County Judge Tom Head. "He'll hit the ground running. I don't think there will be any problem with him at all."

Dr. Natarajan is not yet board certified. By law, he has two years to do so.
