Attorney General Weighing In On Release Of Oregon Heat Wave Victim Information

(Portland, OR) -- Oregon's attorney general is ordering the release of the names and addresses of the 83 confirmed victims who died during last month's extreme heat wave. The state medical examiner had initially denied media requests for those victims' information, citing the state's public records law. The media is arguing the release of the victim information will allow better assessment of the government's preparedness and responsiveness to the heat. The medical examiner says releasing that information could complicate further investigations that may require family cooperation.
