New Hampton, Iowa – Chickasaw County has lost its chief medical examiner and the investigator.
Last Monday, the board of supervisors accepted letters of resignation of both positions effective immediately.
Lucas Brinkman is the chief medical examiner and told the New Hampton Tribune he finds the political climate in the county has made this job untenable.
Jeremy McGrath is the medical examiner investigator and he says he resigned because he can’t take the ‘harassment involved with the position.’ He cited industries outside the county government for the ‘harassment’.
The board of supervisors will reach out to Mercy Medical Center New Hampton for alternative replacements.
