Under fire in Texas, San Diego pathologist announces he will not renew contract with Lubbock County

The San Diego pathologist who is being sued in Texas for allegedly improperly harvesting organs from bodies during autopsies is canceling his contract with Lubbock County.

The decision, which follows a spate of unwelcome publicity and criminal investigations, was announced in a letter Tuesday from Evan Matshes, the San Diego pathologist who owns NAAG Pathology Labs in Sorrento Valley.

NAAG is under contract to handle autopsies and run the Lubbock County Medical Examiner’s office. Its contract, worth $2.4 million this fiscal year, also includes providing services to 19 other Texas counties that contract with Lubbock County for medical examiner services.

Matshes said he would not seek to extend the agreement beyond Sept. 30, in large part due to interference from unspecified politically motivated people who made it difficult for him to attract new hires, the letter said.
