NEW YORK (AP) — The New York City medical examiner's office has fired one person and suspended another after a review found that some DNA samples weren't sent to a state database.
The office announced the actions Thursday. It says an outside expert will be brought in to do a complete review of the lab's management.
The discovery was made as the office looked into unrelated possible errors in DNA analysis. It then determined that 55 DNA samples had been sent to a local database, but not to the state.
The office says employees who knew of the problem didn't report it in a timely manner. The deputy director of quality assurance has been fired and the director suspended pending further review.
