Coroner’s Investigator Convicted In Gun Scheme

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — A Douglas County coroner’s investigator has been convicted of embezzlement after he was accused of keeping firearms that had been used in suicides instead of destroying them.

The state attorney general’s office says 66-year-old Carter Kimball Lord was convicted Thursday. He faces up to three years in prison for each charge, though he’s eligible for probation.

Lord was accused of selling one gun and keeping two others to sell at a store he owns in Sedalia called the Stock Shop.

The attorney general’s office says the guns had been released to the coroner’s office by the families of the victims and were supposed to be destroyed.

Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 24.
