Share this post

The annual coroners report for Porter County was released this week, and twenty-percent of coroners office cases last year involved suicide – County Coroner Chuck Harris says that's an "astonishing" figure.  The number of suicides went up dramatically in 2012, Harris said, up 90-percent from the 2011 totals.  Harris says from his office's experience suicides are usually directly related to relationship conflicts and economic desperation.
