Coroner's reports

If someone dies of a drug overdose in a public place, according to what I've gleaned from +this post and +this Wikipedia entry, the coroner would order a post-mortem performed but probably no inquest would be held because there would be no suspicion of third-party involvement. Is that right?
Where would those post-mortem records then be kept? Would the police have the originals, or a copy, or would they only be kept at the coroner's office?
