Amends GS 130A-383 to require the Chief Medical Examiner to dispose of an unclaimed body by cremation upon completion of a death investigation and in accordance with the rules of the Commission for Public Health. Deems a body unclaimed if: (1) no individual has notified the person in possession of the body within 10 days after the date of death of the desire to dispose of the body; or (2) all individuals who have expressed interest in arranging for the disposition of the body have ceased communicating with the person in possession of the body for at least five consecutive days, at least 10 days have passed since the date of death, and the person in possession has used reasonable efforts to contact all individuals who have expressed interest in arranging for final disposition. 

Enacts GS 130A-386.5 to establish confidentiality for death investigation information and records provided to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (Office) or the Office's agents to the same extent of confidentiality the information and records had while in possession of the city, county, or other public entity which provided them. Deems the information and records not public records when provided to the Office unless they otherwise constitute public records while in the possession of the city, county, or other public entity.
