Coroner resigns as auditor investigates invoices, payments

NEW ALBANY — Union County Coroner Mark Golding has resigned.

On Thursday, the State Auditor’s Office confirmed Golding is being investigated for filing false claims and invoices with the county over death investigations and was paid for the claims.

A news release says investigators seized a $5,000 check Wednesday from the Union County Chancery Clerk’s Office as evidence.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering says the alleged crime was uncovered during the standard audit process.

Audit investigators say Golding resigned Thursday.

District Attorney Ben Creekmore tells WTVA-TV the investigation is continuing and any information uncovered will be presented to a grand jury.
