ME Melinda Warner is a fictional character on the show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, played by Tamara Tunie.

A medical examiner, Warner often works with Manhattan's 16th Precinct (aka the sex crimes unit) by helping its detectives find scientific evidence to support their cases. She and her husband have one daughter in middle school. She was a doctor in the United States Air Force, and served two tours of duty during the Gulf War before she began work as a medical examiner.

Warner is known for her intelligence and has recently taken a more active role in the SVU team. In the season 7 episode, "Blast", Warner saved a man's life by performing an impromptu surgery after he was shot at a bank by his own son after his little sister was rescued by SVU. While Stabler might have been released by the gunman, Warner minutes later fired at the assailant, wounding him in the leg. The New York SWAT team later apprehends him.

She became a regular cast member in the 2005-2006 season, appearing in the credits.
