(In the case of a death that occurred outside of a hospital, the police will handle the collection of the deceased’s belongings at the police station and the signing of documents.)
In Thailand, there is a big difference in the handling of bodies between “cases where the death was determined to be caused by a doctor’s diagnosis in a hospital or at home” and “cases where the death was recognized to be even slightly incidental, such as death in a locked room.

In the latter case, the death occurs outside the hospital and the police are called in to perform a judicial autopsy, which is required by law.
Therefore, the consent of the bereaved family is not required for a judicial autopsy.
