‘Wayne Carver’ CT Coroner Of Sandy Hook School Shooting Fame Dies At 67

HARTFORD, CT. (THECOUNT) — Dr. H. Wayne Carver II, the former Connecticut chief medical examiner whose office examined the bodies of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, has died. He was 67.

Carver died Thursday night at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, said Dr. James Gill, current chief medical examiner.

Carver, a portly man known for his dark sense of humor, joined the medical examiner’s office in 1983 and headed the office from 1989 until his retirement in 2013, reports OttumwaCourier.

Carver, who appeared extensively on TV news broadcasts, was working at the time of the massacre at Sandy Hook in Newtown on Dec. 14, 2012, when 20 children and six adults were gunned down.

“I’ve been at this a third of a century,” he said during a media interview after the school shooting. “It’s probably the worst I have seen or the worst that … any of my colleagues have seen.”

He also investigated the killing of Helle Crafts, of Newtown, whose husband, Richard, fed her body through a woodchipper in 1986. Before the trial, Carver put a euthanized pig through one so jurors could compare the bone fragments with a few ounces of evidence that prosecutors said were the remains of Helle Crafts. His work helped convict Richard Crafts of murder.

Carver’s death was natural, officials said, but the exact cause was not immediately clear.
