Lafourche officials, coroner at odds over $75,000 he supposedly shouldn't have receivedLafourche officials and the parish's coroner are embroiled in a dispute over an estimated $75,000 in fees he received for performing autopsies over the past decade. The coroner, Dr. John King said he was not aware the Parish Council changed an ordinance in 2011 to eliminate the fees and instead pay the coroner by salary only. It was not immediately clear whether the parish received a signature confirming that King or someone in his office had received the letter.
