Ector County Commissioners to Hold Special Meeting on Tuesday Regarding Future of Medical Examiner’s Office

ECTOR COUNTY - The Ector County Commissioners Court is holding a special meeting on Tuesday to determine what will happen with the Medical Examiner's Office.

Talisha Redic gave birth to a baby boy who tested positive for cocaine.

That baby died a few weeks after being born.

The Medical Examiner's Office didn't perform an autopsy on the baby and even a pair of office investigators were called out by the grand jury saying they made a "reckless decision."

The Ector County District Attorney says without the autopsy, Redic could be getting off easy.

The meeting is set to start at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.
