Odessa, TX (Local Big 2 News) - "Being able to hire Chuck for this position I think was a great move for that office," said Judge Susan Redford.

Chuck Moad takes over the Ector County Medical Examiner Chief Investigator position Monday.

After more than 30-years of law enforcement experience, Moad says he's ready to take on the job amid the on-going controversy with ME's operations.

"We really want to take a good hard look at how everything is done and identify what we can do better," said Moad, the new Medical Examiner Chief Investigator.

During the controversy, former chief investigator Shirley Standefer resigned from the ME's office and transferred to the sheriff's office.

Chief Medical Examiner Examiner Dr. Anne Acreman also put in her resignation, but until a replacement is found, Judge Susan Redford says Dr. Acreman will continue to hold the position.

"Our priority has been the chief position because the chief is usually the one that oversees the day to day operations of the office. Kind of the leader of the investigators of the office," Judge Redford said.

Judge Redford tells me besides his law enforcement expertise, Moad also has a business background, which could make him a great addition to the ME's office.

"Were counting on him being the person that would help us rebuild the bridge in that department and the District Attorney's office and also continue the good relationships with all other law enforcement agencies," Judge Redford said.

While Moad tells me he has a number of ideas to help improve the me's office, it's not going to happen over night.

"It's not a job that just anyone can do walking in off the street, it takes a lot to be a death investigator so, just have patience," Moad said.
