individual about whom the medical examiner or coroner has medical examiner data.
Upon completion of the coroner's or medical examiner's final summary of findings, the
data collected in the investigation and the final summary of it are private or nonpublic
data. However, if the final summary and the record of death indicate the manner of
death is homicide, undetermined, or pending investigation and there is an active law
enforcement investigation, within the meaning of section 13.82, subdivision 7, relating to
the death of the deceased individual, the data remain confidential or protected nonpublic.
Upon review by the county attorney of the jurisdiction in which the law enforcement
investigation is active, the data may be released to persons described in subdivision 8 if
the county attorney determines release would not impede the ongoing investigation. When
the law enforcement investigation becomes inactive, the data are private or nonpublic
data. Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to make not public the data elements
identified in subdivision 2 at any point in the investigation or thereafter.
