Who is responsible for cleaning up after a suicide or messy death?

Crime scene investigators and emergency personnel do not clean up after trauma, crime and suicides. In most cases there are always medical waste left behind in addition to blood, bodily fluids and other matter that must be cleaned up. The real questions is, “Who’s responsible for cleanup?”

Ordinarily the family members or other persons residing with the deceased would be responsible for the cleanup. If the person died alone or without family, the responsibility typically falls on whomever owns the property. If the incident occurs in a commercial setting such as an office building, the management of the building would most likely be responsible for ensuring proper cleanup to protect other tenants in the building.
