The Unidentified Bodies Inquest Program is an in-depth workshop on how to handle unidentified bodies during inquests. Deaths in Texas jurisdictions may overwhelm local resources, including the ability to manage the dead and perform transnational identifications. Nonetheless, there is a standard duty of care that must be provided to all deceased persons.

This training for Justices of the Peace (JPs) is intended to assist authorities in adequately responding to deaths, particularly for migrants, and providing them with the necessary tools during surges in deaths.

NamUs staff will provide a presentation and overview of the NamUs program and services offered for unidentified decedents.
