In this episode, Darren and Wendy discuss the Evolution and challenges of locating and notifying NOK in a transient society. With the modern age we live in it is getting harder to located next-of-kin in some cases. Issues such as homelessness and a transient lifestyle of a deceased can create huge obstacles.
In addition to the victim being mobile, the family may not stay in one place for very long causing public records to search to be a failed lead.
We give tips on locating NOK as well as some cautions to ensure you are not caught up in a legal backlash when new family members appear and want to know why they were not notified.
