CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Franklin County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner was listed in good condition Thursday at Hershey Medical Center, where he is being treated for a heart attack he suffered Sunday, according to a hospital spokeswoman at Hershey.
Conner, 42, was transferred to an intermediate care unit at Hershey from Chambersburg Hospital's intensive care unit on Tuesday, the spokeswoman said.
Conner has announced his intention to run for coroner at the end of 1999 when County Coroner Ken Peiffer retires. He has already passed the state exam.
Conner has been chief deputy for 10 years, investigating accidental, violent, criminal, unusual, sudden or unexpected deaths in the county.
He also owns and operates a 17-acre, full-time auto salvage business on U.S. 30 West.
