Hearsebulance

The ambulance in the pictures.

They are often seen at murder sites and resemble what Jezza Clarkson called hearsebulances.

Who owns them and what are they for?

I dont know who owns them but they are used when someone has died suddenly (ie murder or unexpected sudden death, suicide etc).

They are used to transport the body to the coroners for a post mortem.

They use these to protect the chain of evidence should there be a court case if foul play is suspected.

Undertakers use them for transporting bodies from where people passed away, such as hospitals, hospices etc, to where they are prepared for burial/cremation. They are also used to transport people to medical schools if they have donated their bodies to medical science.

How could a Merc Vito hearsebulance preserve evidence more than a traditional hearse?

I think they're to do with the state pathologist? Seem to be a hand full of them about the place and only seem used in conjunction with a potential garda investigation..?

A traditional hearse is private and the body and any evidence could be tampered with while in transport.

They use these as they are secure and the staff driving them work for the coroner.

When my aunt died suddenly in her sleep a similar vehicle removed her body for a post mortem. It was two weeks before they released the body for burial when foul play was rulled out and thats when the traditional undertaker took over.

I thought it was more about the State Pathologist/City Morgue than coroner?

State Pathologist/coroner same thing. Its very Inspector Morse anyway.

Remember the body is evidence so must be preserved.
