A little bit about Dr Werner Spitz
One might think such a job requires somebody heartless and cold, but one meeting with Werner Spitz, MD, proves otherwise. "The fact that people are dead--it doesn’t bother me. I can do an autopsy on any kind of mutilated body and that doesn’t upset me one little bit," Dr. Spitz says. "In fact, it challenges me to find out more. How did it happen? Did they use a chainsaw? A knife? An ax? That intrigues the hell out of me. But what does upset me tremendously is talking to the family of a victim. That’s too hard for me."
Since coming to America from his homeland of Israel in 1959, Dr. Spitz has built a successful career as a forensic pathologist, toxicology consultant, and professor of pathology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. He was the Wayne County Medical Examiner for 16 years and now serves in that role for Macomb County. He has served on committees investigating the deaths of President John F. Kennedy, Jr., Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mary Jo Kopechne, who drowned after the car driven by Senator Edward Kennedy plunged off the Chappaquiddick Bridge. He has also served as an expert witness in numerous high-profile cases including the California Night Stalker, the Preppy Murder Trial in New York, and the wrongful death suit against O.J. Simpson. Presently, he is advising the Boulder, Colo., police in their investigation of the Jon Benet Ramsey case. He is the author and editor of the textbook, Medicolegal Investigation of Death, now in its third edition and considered to be the authoritative textbook in this specialty, worldwide.
