Graham Hetrick knows everybody has a story; it's his job to listen. The child of an undertaker, Graham grew up in a funeral home, and for him, being around dead bodies is a normal part of life.
For the last 25 years, Graham has been the Coroner of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania handling close to 700 suspicious deaths each year.
While detectives search for clues among the living, medical death investigators uncover the secrets of the dead. Some stories aren't what they seem, and just when you think they've come to an end, they take a turn you never saw coming.
Every death starts with a "signal 12" - a call to the coroner - but after that, every case follows its own course, and the investigation can sometimes lead to the most unlikely result.
From a tragic fire resulting in the death of a married couple which turns out to be something more sinister, to a survivor’s account which sends Graham and his team on a desperate search for the victims of a serial killer, will they be able to identify the perpetrator of these bone-chilling cases? Featuring re-enactments and firsthand accounts from Graham Hetrick and his team, The Coroner: I Speak for the Dead chronicles some of Dauphin County's most mysterious and disturbing homicide cases.
