Committee Recommends California Doctor As New Medical Examiner

August 16, 2019

The Medical Examiner’s Search Committee has recommended Dr. Scott Luzi as the new First District medical examiner.

Luzi is a Forensic Pathologist currently working in California. The committee reviewed Luzi’s background including his experience, education, and references.

The counties in the First District, including Escambia and Santa Rosa will need to reach an agreement on his contract and salary before his name can be submitted to Gov. Ron DeSantis for appointment, according to State Attorney Bill Eddins. All parties involved will discuss the issue and it is hoped that a decision will be made within 30 days.

Luzi is the medical director and manager of Anatomic, Clinical, and Forensic Pathology Services in Escondido, California.

    We can’t match California pay, but we are offering him a spot closer to paradise to live in.
