In my (yet embryonic) story, there's some subterfuge over the body: people who shouldn't have possession of the body finagle a way to get jurisdiction for the autopsy, then remove the body to a location of their choosing and do whatever with it. These folks have a high level of resources available to them that allows them to fake legal paperwork or otherwise manipulate the legal systems to get what they want.
I envision a scene in which the 'proper' medical examiner getting ready to do the autopsy when the interlopers burst in waving their paperwork and demanding to take possession of the body immediately. I expect a superior would need to examine the fake paperwork, as the ME wouldn't be able to authorise such a transfer.
How does this sound to those of you in the know? What sort of details do I need to chase down to make a (brief) scene seem plausible to your average reader?
Thanks much in advance for any help you can give me on this.
