The Young Coroner is a character in Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
The Young Coroner was a member of the Men of the Machine.
He was in the police morgue when Detectives Zimmerfield and Estevez visited to look at the corpses from the Perryman Grand Hotel penthouse murder scene. He told them the two cultists' missing corpses were gone and had been transferred to the FBI.
The Young Coroner and Jed followed Dirk Gently and Todd Brotzman to their treasure hunt in Skagit Valley; they waited outside the diner on the first day, and attacked them on the second day of their trip after they had found the Unlimited Energy Device. During the fight the Kitten-Shark was triggered and killed both Jed and the Young Coroner.
