Work Of Ramsey County Medical Examiner Being Reviewed

Minnesota NewsST. PAUL  (AP) РAuthorities are investigating the work of Ramsey County Medical Examiner Michael McGee, after a judge found he gave false testimony in an Alexandria murder trial.

McGee’s testimony helped convict Michael Hansen of Alexandria in the death of his baby girl back in 2004. But Douglas County Judge Peter Irvine found in July that McGee gave false testimony, and Hansen was granted a new trial.

Ramsey County is now reviewing McGee’s work. McGee is a private contractor and no one monitors his daily operations.

McGee declined to discuss the Hansen case, but says he sees his job as a public service.

McGee has been Ramsey County’s chief medical examiner for 26 years, and also serves at least 14 other counties.
