Train death on video: Pierce medical examiner battles with railroad

The freight train that killed Ronnie Stirgus earlier this year had a camera that captured his final moments on video.

Now Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway officials accuse the Pierce County Medical Examiner of using an illegal ruse to try to get the footage and have gone to court to stop him.

Medical Examiner Thomas Clark said his investigators need a copy of the video to determine the manner of death which can include accident, suicide or be undetermined. When rail officials wouldnt hand it over, citing privacy concerns, he flexed the subpoena power the state gives him, Clark said.
