Since June 19th, eight medical/holistic/alternative doctors have been found dead, and at least four of these deaths are being treated as homicides. These deaths have perplexed and rattled people, especially those in the alternative medicine community, and everyone is wondering what exactly is going on. Are these deaths linked?
We spoke with Erin Elizabeth (full interview is below), who first broke the story after the death of Dr. Bradstreet, to try to get a better scope of the situation. Her mind was reeling after she realized a pattern was emerging before her very eyes. Whenever she began trying to make correlations and connections, another death happened.
Erin is the well-known author and founder of HealthNutNews.com, and Dr.Mercola’s significant other. They personally knew some of the doctors, and after the first three deaths occurred she felt an obligation to keep reporting. Interestingly, mainstream media hasn’t really picked up the story and there are lot of questions that need answers. Authorities are still investigating and slowly providing details. A short timeline of events is as follows:
June 19th – Dr. Bradstreet (well known for his work and research on Autism) found dead in a river with a gun shot wound to his chest in North Carolina. Self-inflicted?
June 21st – Dr. Hedendal and Dr. Holt found dead on the East coast of Florida. Dr. Hedendal died in his car and Dr. Holt’s death has yet to be determined.
June 29th – Dr. Theresa Sievers found murdered in her home. Dr. Jeffrey Whiteside goes missing. Reports say he just “walked away.”
July 10th – Lisa Riley found in her home with a gunshot wound to her head.
July 19th – Dr. Ron Schwartz found murdered in his home on the East Coast of Florida.
July 21st – Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died as a result of a cardiac related issue.
July 23rd – Dr. Jeffery Whiteside is found dead in Door County with a .22 caliber close to his body.
Although the timing and similarity of these deaths could be coincidental, authorities are not ruling out a possible link, particularly considering five of the eight were found in Florida. These doctors have left behind family, friends, and patients who trusted and respected them.
Your relationship with your doctor is an important one, sometimes they know more about you than even your loved ones do. It’s easy to understand the level of shock and sadness surrounding these deaths, and the desire to know more. Dr. Patrick Fitzpatrick is still missing. It’s been about 3 and half weeks since his truck was seen on the side of a road. He was traveling from North Dakota to Montana.
We will be doing a followup segment with Erin soon, as new details are emerging every day.
