Not a single BC journo has questioned why the Glee star, Cory Monteith’s autopsy was fast-tracked ahead of other BC residents who died and would have families waiting to hear the results:
Coroner Barb McLintock “Given the particular high profile nature of this case, once that decision’s made, we’re going to try to get it done as soon as possible” (see here)
This is blatantly two-tiered by the BC Coroners Service but not a peep from the BC Liberals as they even used the government’s website to post a press release for heavens sake (see here).
How many other cases did the BC Coroners Service set aside so they could deal with the death of a celebrity?
Need an autopsy done quick in BC? Too bad unless your dead loved one is a Glee TV star.
Update: McLintock openly admits to jumping others in line and all because he’s a celebrity
“We might try and do some queue jumping to see if we can get them a little earlier, simply because we recognize this is a case with huge amount of public interest.’
“It’s amazing. I think he’s always been seen in Victoria here as ‘local boy makes good’ … but I think I certainly didn’t realize what a big star he had become in the whole world,” she said.
“We’ve had calls from England, Ireland, Brazil this afternoon. The biggest TV network in Latin America is interested in [the case]. This guy really was an A-lister and that seems to somehow make it doubly tragic, tragic for anyone that age who passes suddenly.” (see here)
She needs to be immediately fired.
