About Dr. Wecht's Career
Cyril H. Wecht The
Rivera on Wecht
"I've known Cyril Wecht for most of my 30-year broadcasting career, and my respect for him has only grown over the decades. His skills as an attorney, as a pathologist, as a medical examiner are legendary.
Dr. Wecht has guided my audiences through our coverage of crimes ranging from the Kennedy assassination, to the O.J. Simpson trial, to the Jonbenet Ramsey murder mystery. And whether or not my audiences knew it, they were getting an education in forensic sciencea lesson in how medical science is applied to this country's criminal laws."
