During an autopsy, the body's chest cavity and skull have been cut open and the organs and brain have been removed. To prepare the body for the funeral home after the examination, the medical examiner will either place the body's organs and brain back inside the body or incinerate them. The chest flaps are then closed and the skull cap is replaced, and each is sewn in place. With the surgical portion of the autopsy complete, the examiner will contact the funeral home to pick up the deceased.
