Evan's Death

Gibson talks to the coroner

The coroner worker was a man working for the Metropolitan Police Department as part of the Crime Scene Investigation unit. It was his job to take the corpses of potential homicide cases to the morgue for their obduction. Additionally, he had to give the investigating officers at the crime scene a first estimation of the victims' time and cause of death. At one point of his career, he got involved in the case of serial killer Detective Mark Hoffman, who continued the deadly games of his late mentor, John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After a car crash at Pete's Auto Body, a junkyard at 58th Street, had been reported to the police, Officer Rogers, who worked for the Department for Internal Affairs, went to the junkyard, where he quickly realized that the supposed accident was actually another Jigsaw trap, which had taken the lives of Evan, Kara, Dan and Jake, a group of four racist skinheads. Therefore, the forensic team went to the crime scene. Shortly afterwards, Rogers' partner, Officer Matt Gibson, arrived at the junkyard as well. After taking a look at the corpses, he ordered the coroner worker to send them to the morgue as they had to be obducted immediately. (Saw 3D)


Hoffman kills the coroner

When he arrived there with the bodies, he told the pathologist, Dr. Adam Heffner, that the four corpses' examination had to be preponed. Unknown to them, Hoffman had removed the corpse of Dan from his respective body bag and had instead used it to infiltrate the police station. When the coroner returned to the morgue after a while, he found the corpse of Heffner lying in a puddle of blood. However, before he could react, Hoffman attacked him and stabbed him in the throat with a knife, killing him in the process. (Saw 3D)


The corpses of the coroner worker, Heffner and several police officers murdered by Hoffman were found shortly afterwards. The events surrounding the massacre at the police station were reported to the public by the news channels the same night. Thereby, everyone with information about the whereabouts of Mark Hoffman was requested to go to the police immediately. (Saw 3D)


Not much can be said about the coroner worker's personality due to his short screen time.
