Wbns, (AP) – A coroner’s autopsy is the examination Ohio involving a former toxicologist whose credentials are challenged.

WBNS-TV in Columbus reports James Ferguson admitted that he falsely claimed to have graduated from Ohio State University in 1972, but actually graduated in 1988. The station said it also obtained a college transcript indicating Ferguson failed basic courses in biochemistry.

Ferguson did not return a message left by The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak said Ferguson would have treated thousands of cases during his career from 1976 to 2003.

Gorniak said the review will cover all autopsies where toxicology tests were a factor in determining the cause of death, but we do not know how it is.
