The families of more than 800 deceased people have been notified after a camera used by the Massachusetts Chief Medical Examiner's office went missing within the last week.
The camera, which went missing from the Holyoke office, contained a memory card used in the examinations of 801 bodies between July 31, 2015 and Nov. 24, 2017.
It's not clear what happened to the camera, but families have been notified by phone call that photos of their deceased family members may have been compromised.
The medical examiner involved has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation.
The camera is separate from cameras used in crime scene investigations.
