Faulkner County Judge Jim Baker appointed Robert Edwards as interim Faulkner County Coroner after Pat Moore died suddenly earlier this month.

Edwards has worked in the coroner’s office since 2002 and previously served as one of two deputy coroners. He started riding with Moore as an emergency medical technician (EMT) in 1988 before working with him at the coroner’s office for the past 15 years.
