Coroner Ed Allen watches as workers move furniture Jan. 10, 2014, into the new Beaufort County Coroner's Office on Old Shell Road in Port Royal. The office is now out of the old Hurricane Katrina relief trailer it had operated from on Shanklin Road. The new 6,300-square-foot building will provide office space for Allen and his employees, and house the county's first morgue, which can hold eight bodies. Money for the $850,000 project to convert the former county Disabilities and Special Needs building came from cash remaining from bond sales dating to 2002.
