Tissue Samples

by Scott

I wish to research rules and procedures on evidence handling of tissue samples, how long they are kept in the State of Florida. Could you point me in the right direction.

I have not been able to find the answers I am looking for, and the medical examiner's office has not been very helpful. Tissue samples were destroyed only six months after the victims death. I need to find what, if any, rules and procedures exist before they can be destroyed?
