Preckwinkle announced on Tuesday June 19, 2012 that Cook County medical examiner Dr. Nancy Jones is retiring as part of a shake-up at the office that comes months after the staff drew criticism for allowing bodies to pile up in the morgue cooler. Preckwinkle also says executive officer Kimberly Jackson was asked to resign, four other employees were fired and seven more disciplined as part of the overhaul. Earlier this year, Preckwinkle's aides found 363 bodies stored in a cooler designed to hold 300. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File)
