With no access to refrigeration and no funding for a burial, Coroner Tim Brown of Marlboro County, SC, says he made a "professional decision" to cremate the decomposing remains of a John Doe, who was later identified as athlete Michael Jordan's father. In "Post Mortem," airing Feb. 1, FRONTLINE, ProPublica and NPR examine the reality of death investigation in America.
