Hi there,
	I don't know 'bout published reports, but I think you'll find them at
the county courthouse.  I was at ours in McRae,Ga. Pulled out  one of
the heavy books to see what was in it and found it was the Coroners
Reports. Never entered my mind that there was such a thing. Plan to go
looking for more. Can find lots of treasures at courthouses.
