News of yet another two ‘alternative’ doctors who have died in what appear to be suspicious circumstances.
To date, this makes five doctors who have died and another five who have gone missing.
Lisa Riley DO (Doctor of Osteopathic), from Lee County Georgia, was found dead with a gunshot wound to her head.
Her husband was the original suspect but many feel he was being framed for her death.
According to a report from wtoc : An autopsy at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab on the body of 34-year-old Doctor Lisa Riley reveals that her cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, according to the GBI. She was found dead in her home in the Northampton subdivision in Lee County on Friday.
An autopsy conducted by the GBI crime lab in Macon revealed that the cause of Mrs. Riley’s death was a gunshot wound to the head. The manner of death is still under investigation as agents continue to process the scene of the incident and conduct numerous interviews.
Investigators stayed there most of the weekend, gathering evidence in her mysterious death. Her husband, 32-year old Yathomas Riley, called 911 around 8:30 a.m. Friday, and said he found her dead.
Healthnut news reports: Lisa Riley DO (Doctor of Osteopathic), from Lee County Georgia, was found dead with a gunshot wound to her head. She was an emergency room physician at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in the state of Georgia. She was only 34. Besides being an Osteopath, I have no idea if she had any holistic or “alternative” training or beliefs. Our heart goes out to her family and loved ones. Husband called it into 911, husband had been charged with attempted murder before but it was determined he was framed and charges dropped
Then there is the death of chiropractor Dr. Baron Holt DC who died less than a month ago on Fathers day June 21st on the East Coast of Florida. It also happened to be the very same day that Dr. Bruce Hedendal (also a DC on the E Coast of Florida) was found slumped over in his car. Both doctors were described as being extremely fit.
Healthnut news reports: These two chiropractors who tragically died the same day in the same state, come 2 days after the death of Dr. Bradstreet MD who was found in a river in North Carolina with a gunshot wound to his chest. Previously Dr. Bradstreet had lived and practiced here on the East Coast of Florida as well. I hesitated covering Dr. Holt’s story as I had no information and didn’t feel comfortable as there were no recent articles I could reference.
Now there is.
From this glowing article just out a mere 48 hours ago which refers to Dr. Holt as the faithful healer:
His unexpected death last month while on a trip to Jacksonville, Fla. has been a blow to his family and the community he’d created through his work. Though he had been struggling with recent health issues, none were thought to be life threatening by loved ones. His family is awaiting the results from an autopsy report.
I had searched before for any information but saw no statement from the family. Now that I see this article states his family felt he had no health challenge that was life threatening and was a mere 33 years old.
The article goes on to say
“Holt’s practice, Revolution Chiropractic, had just celebrated its fifth anniversary this year. Highly fit at 33, he was deeply connected to his Christian faith, and his career as a Triangle practitioner was booming.
Holt took a holistic approach to treatment; he and his staff taught classes on nutrition, exercise, even aromatherapy.
In 2012, he traveled to London to work with the U.S. Olympic team, and could count Ultimate Fighting Championship athletes among the 500 patients his practice saw each week, said Brigitte Spurgeon, friend and Revolution Chiropractic clinical director.”
When I read that he was “highly fit” well accomplished, even traveling to London to work with the Olympic team and already emerging as a prominent natural chiropractor, I feel that it’s my duty to report on his sad untimely death whatever the cause.
Again, our hearts go out to his family, friends and loved ones and we hope they get to the bottom of this whatever the cause may be.
These latest deaths fall inline with a long list of either dead or missing, natural/alternative Doctors.
Seeing these Doctors pass away in suspicious circumstances or have them simply go missing is very sad indeed. Being an outspoken Doctor on holistic health care or natural healing seems to comes with a heavy price these days.
