Dallas, TX asked in Wrongful Death and Medical Malpractice for Louisiana

Q: . Can I request autopsy with toxology report in the death if my grandfather?

if I have no power of attorney or medical? The events leading to hospitalization and reason/explanation of his condition was not ever explained to me.. basically I was dismissed in my questioning of medical.staff to try and understand what happened for him to have passed so quickly. I also have pictures of an obstruction in his throat that was of gauze type material, and other factors that give me just cause to question the medical facts and events leading up to his death. I suspect some sort of foul play and want to know what rights I have to begin a investigation and the procedure to do so. In morehouse parish louisiana
