HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) - A new medical examiner is coming to Hopkins County.
The position was vacant for over a year, and there were talks of possibly shutting the office down.
However, Cincinnati native Greg Wanger will take over the new position, and local officials say that'll have a major impact on not just Hopkins County, but all of Western Kentucky.
"With their workload already there, it just doubled their workload. It took us a while longer to get reports back," Mayfield said.
Wanger will transfer to the Madisonville office January 1st.
