GREENFIELD — A former coroner who was removed from office in 2012 after showing up, impaired, to the scene of a death investigation has rejoined the staff as a deputy coroner.
Tamara Vangundy served as the elected coroner from 2009 until mid-2012, when she was arrested at the scene of a suicide with a blood-alcohol content of 0.16 percent, twice the legal limit. She served one year of probation after pleading guilty in the case, and Friday, she said she is ready to put the past behind her.
