COMMUNITY WIDE: Lack of forensic pathologists delays autopsies in criminal cases


FLINT, Mich. -- Imagine your loved one is murdered and instead of the accused killer going to trial quickly, the case gets stuck in court. That's the reality one Flint mom lives with. Someone at the now shut down Great Western Inn smelled a foul odor back in June 2018, leading to the discovery of Jessica Flood’s body in a motel room. Now for Jessica's mom, it's sleepless nights and countless calls to make sure her daughter gets her day in court.
