Richmond County has a new coroner.
Mark Bowen was officially sworn Saturday morning as the county's new coroner.
Bowen has been with the coroner's office for 14 years and says he's working to win back the trust of the community.
"We want the community to know that we have chain of custodies now. We have people that we hold accountable for these products, for these properties and we're going to make sure nothing like this will happen again," said Bowen.
Bowen takes over for Grover Tuten who resigned after nearly 40 years with the department, the last 10 as coroner. Tuten is facing charges of theft by taking and violation of oath.
