It has been my honor to be a professional colleague of Richard Greenwood for the past 3½ years. I have been witness to Richard bringing credibility back to the Walla Walla County Coroner’s Office.
I have attended several training conferences with Richard and have always been impressed with his skill and knowledge as a medicolegal death investigator.
Richard is liked and respected by coroners and forensic pathologists all across Washington state.
Richard’s insight and courage in calling for a coroner’s inquest last year was very beneficial to the citizens of Walla Walla. An emotional and possible volatile situation was handled in a fair and professional manner, where people were heard and justice was served.
In my opinion it would be a mistake for the citizens of Walla Walla County to replace a capable, hardworking and skilled coroner such as Richard Greenwood with a chiropractor or the previous coroner.
