Questions Arise About Lubbock's Possible New Medical Examiner

Lubbock County will soon be accused under RICO - which is short for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations. The Commissioner's plan is to appoint Shrdar Natarajan as the next Medical Examiner.

Natarajan was the County Medical Examiner nearly three years ago. However, a document specialist in Austin claims Natarajan's appointment is a problem.

David Fisher filed an Attorney General complaint against Lubbock County last year. He claims the County Commissioners never legally or properly set up the Office of Medical Examiner from 1994 to the present. Fisher says the issue is that Natarajan worked under that system.

Fisher wrote the Commissioners an email Friday saying - in essence, they're not taking the problem seriously enough, so he intends to file a RICO complaint to the U.S. Department of Justice.
