Admissibility of Autopsy Reports, Etc.

I found this statute while looking for something else and thought I'd share it, to wit:
The records of the division of post mortem examination, the county medical examiner, or transcripts of the records certified to by the chief medical examiner or the deputy medical examiner or the duly appointed representative of the chief medical examiner, and the reports of the toxicology laboratory examinations performed by the testing laboratory or transcripts of the reports certified to by the director of the testing laboratory or the director's duly appointed representative, shall be received as competent evidence in any court of this state of the facts and matters contained in the records or reports.
T.C.A. § 38-7-110(a) (emphasis added).
