August 2, 2018

The former Wabash County coroner has been charged with official misconduct, accused of failing to turn over files to the current coroner as required, Indiana State Police said today.

Carol Nose, 66, of Wabash, who served as coroner from 2008 to 2016, was being held in the county jail, state police at Peru said in a statement.

The statement said police recovered some files from Nose’s home, but those files did not contain a coroner’s report as required by law. Police said Nose failed to complete the required documentation on more than 300 cases that came through her office.
