Death investigations are assigned to state troopers assigned to local offices of the district attorney except in the city of Boston where Boston police handle death investigations. Are all death investigations on MBTA property which seems to occur on a weekly basis handled by the Transit Poice?

Yes, I know a detective with the MBTA police. They investigate any death on MBTA property.
