Murderous Physician Finally Nailed: Faces a Totally Justifiable Death Penalty

“We’ve waited so long. It’s been a long road, it really has, and it’s very emotional – a doctor slaughtering 4 people out of revenge.” (Douglas County Attorney Donald Kleine)


Medical mad-man Anthony J Garcia

In the city of Omaha Nebraska Doctor Anthony Joseph Garcia is facing the death penalty. He was found guilty yesterday in the murders of 4 people, including an 11-year-old boy.

Garcia was originally convicted of First Degree Murder in the 2008 stabbing death of Thomas Hunter, the young son of Doctor William Hunter, as well as Shirley Sherman, the family’s 57-year-old housekeeper. In a separate jury trial, the homicidal medical maniac was found guilty of the Murders of a Creighton University staff MD, Doctor Roger Brumback, and his wife Mary.

During the trials the juries saw photos of the terrible murder scenes, including those showing the boy lying on a bloody floor with a kitchen knife through his throat. Garcia refused to look at the photos.

The prosecution was able to prove that the murders were motivated by Garcia’s rage over having been fired from Creighton University School of Medicine’s residency program in 2001 by the two senior physicians. They presented a stunning amount of incriminating evidence, including credit card and cell phone records placing Garcia in Omaha. Garcia had driven there from Indiana. Garcia’s computer records showed he had done searches for the addresses of the victims within days of their deaths.

Garcia was also found guilty on 4 charges of Use of a Deadly Weapon.

Indiana MD Admits Child Sexual Abuse



Dr Jon Andrew Shull

In the city of South Bend a physician previously arrested February 3 on Child Sexual Molestation charges, changed his “not guilty” plea to “guilty” in St. Joseph County Court yesterday. 

According to the case file, Doctor Jon Andrew Shull, age 36, confessed to committing the felony act upon a 5-year-old girl at his home in February 2014. She had told police that “Doctor Shull made me touch him in his bed, and he touched me.”

Prior to his arrest, Shull, a family medicine specialist, was employed at the Southeast Neighborhood Health Center by Beacon Health Group. BHG reports they terminated Shull last year. He is scheduled to be sentenced on November 30.

The Shameful Doctor Robert E Windsor Case: a Patient’s Wife Responds


On March 28 of this year we covered a story on the above-named physician’s criminal activities:

Georgia MD Admits ‘Yes, I Really Did Steal the Money’

Here is a letter of one patient’s wife who responded:

Upset wife says:

My husband was a patient and we knew nothing about this until yesterday. (August 15) All of his staff and employees had to have known.  I say this because Gainesville Times reported that one of the employees stated he did a conference call with them and said that something bad happened (the FBI investigation) but didn’t affect the Georgia clinics.

The staff also claims they weren’t paid the last three weeks before they (the clinic) shut down. My question is, he pleaded Guilty in March and all of his employees were still running his offices, seeing patients, scheduling office procedures, and yet why were they allowed to do all of this, and all of a sudden abandon their patients with notes on all their locations to find another doctor immediately? Should they be held responsible as well?

Thousands of patients left in the cold. Most did not know what was going on and you only have 8 days (to get your) medical records? Why 8 days? And two of those days fall on the weekend. So I say 6 days.

And yes I have proof of the scheduling of a office procedure for the 11th of August 2016. Along with a appointment sheet not card but sheet for this month.

Dear Upset Wife:

We are so sorry that when doctors go bad, it almost always hurts the patients and their families most of all. We have witnessed this for 30 years. In most cases, law enforcement does its specific job, but does not get involved in the medical-appointment-patient care collapse that invariably happens after the arrests.

Our point of anger has always been this: In your case, for example, the Georgia Composite Medical Board knew for well over a YEAR that bad boy Windsor MD was under investigation for crimes that – if proven – were major. THAT is when the Board should have gotten involved. The Board knows full well that any conviction of a physician will absolutely have a terrible impact on at the very least, hundreds of patients.

The Georgia Board should have intervened MONTHS before the conviction, but they didn’t.

As far as we are concerned, state medical boards’ mission statements of “Our priority is always patient safety” is outright, jack-ass-in-the-cornfield yammering.

doc-handcuffs-n-cashThese boards refuse to properly babysit errant doctors, most of whom have been acting out for years prior to any arrest. Then they leave patients and their families to clean up the poopy mess.

In a sane society, patients and their families would march to the state medical boards’ doorsteps with fire and pitchforks. They would absolutely demand accountability for those miscreants who plunder systems; steal insurance money; injure and kill more citizens, than any other known profession.

We do thank you for sharing your story, and we pray your situation has smoothed itself out.

Is It Sunday? Must be Time for Physician Phunnies!

We suspect these would be less funny if they weren’t . . . you know . . . true:

You know the phrase, “We could never make these things up?”

“As an avid reader of true crime, Demon Doctors was even more fascinating and horrific because all of the murderers were physicians like myself.” (book review) Elizabeth Linberg, MD, Urgent Care Director, Tucson, Arizona

“Getting better has one side effect. It has a negative impact on profit within the medical system.”  Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, “Confessions of a Medical Heretic”

“I have never known a clinical psychologist to report, on the basis of a projective test, that the subject is a normal, mentally healthy person. There is no behavior or person that a modern psychiatrist cannot plausibly diagnose as abnormal.” Dr. Thomas Szasz, The Manufacture of Madness

“Every hospital in America has at least one disruptive physician on its medical staff. And most have more than one.” Richard Sheff, MD

“You want to be taken seriously? Practice ignoring the first three nurses who say good morning to you everyday.” Len Hastings, Resident, UCSD, La Jolla

Question: “Now that we know Dr. Swango did in fact poison three paramedics, would you have any concerns about rehiring him to work in your hospital?”

Answer:  “I would have no problem at all.” Robert Haller, Vice President, National Emergency Services, in response to attorney questioning, during a trial in which Michael Swango, MD was suspected in 60 murders and convicted of three.

“We got many thousands of public health complaints last year. Only 5,200 were about physicians.” Jo Ann Uchida, State of Hawaii Professional Regulation Department

“I cannot think of any other industry where honesty is an option.” Susan Sheridan, President, Consumers Advancing Patient Safety (CAPS)

“Some nurses are pretty bright, but most of them are not. Around here we don’t have time to sort it all out. We just call them all Band Aid Bunnies and let it go at that.” Attributed to a House Resident, Jewish Hospital, Louisville

And finally, we once kinda borrowed this note from the surgical lounge at Doctors’ Hospital in San Diego.  We surmise it must have held some measure of educational significance, displayed as it was behind glass in an elegant mahogany frame.

Master these and we’ll go on to the next twelve:

  1. One of us is worth many of them. No patient is worth hurting yourself.
  2. Always stick to what you do best. Or be very, very good at faking it.
  3. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you can justify it to in-house counsel.
  4. You can do everything right and the fool can still die.
  5. You can do lots of things wrong and the patient might live anyway.
  6. Uncommon symptoms of common diseases are far more common than uncommon diseases. (Also known as Intern Mantra #4)
  7. Better-looking patients get better-looking care. Tell people to deal with it.
  8. Refrain from giving the lecture, “Suicide: How to get it right.”
  9. Don’t give in to pharmaceutical bribery without a fight.
  10. A bloody surgeon is a happy surgeon. Leave us alone.
  11. Other peoples’ pain builds character.
  12. Should the patient opt to walk away, he first must sign out A.M.A.


Have a terrific weekend readers, and thank you for buying our books. We think they happen to save lives, with maybe a smidgeon of entertainment along the way.


The Ugly Fact: America Protects Sexual Predator Doctors

dr-pervertA scathing report by The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reveals that over the past 15 years, more than 3,100 American doctors have been disciplined for sexual misbehavior. More than two-thirds – 2,400 – actually sexually assaulted their patients.

Of course those numbers are shocking enough. But a reality just as ugly is the fact that at least half of those found guilty are allowed to keep right on undressing people for money.

Of course the end result is that in the United States, countless thousands of citizens continue to be in terrible peril, because paltry physician discipline plays a key role in a broken system – a system that considers doctors and their reputations worth far, far more than patient safety.


“We are just so reliant on them. We are helpless and vulnerable and literally in pain often times when we go in there. We just have to trust them. So when they cross the boundary, we are in shock, we are paralyzed, we’re confused, we’re scared. We just do not want to believe that a doctor is capable of this.” (David Clohessy, Executive Director of SNAP, an advocacy group for assaulted patients)


The Atlanta-Journal Constitution investigative reporters examined at least 100,000 doctor discipline records from all 50 states. The appalling cases ran the gamut from MDs molesting unconscious patients; physicians sexually touching themselves in treatment rooms; trading drugs for sex; public indecency; child pornography, and hundreds of cases of rape. In each case, the physicians either confessed to state medical boards, or authorities believed patients’ accusations after investigations. 

More on this shrugged-off, societal embarrassment

For more than 100 years American medicine’s “lab coat secrecy” has given authorities the perfect excuse to look the other way when patients accuse doctors of such crimes.

According to Larry Dixon, Executive Director of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners, a major part of the problem is a simple matter of money: states want a return on their medical education investment.

“The resources that have been poured into that education almost demand that you try to salvage that physician.”

The investigators see parallels between the U.S. doctor sexual abuse scandals, and the Catholic priest scandal. While the majority of physicians are not sexual predators, these assaults are far, far more common than people realize.

Here’s but one jaw-dropping case:

NY gynecologist admits to sexual abuse of 2 pregnant patients


L.A. Coroner: Model Died of ‘Neck Manipulation’ by Her Doctor

“I personally have never seen this before.” (L.A. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter)


Katie May & Mia in happier times

When Los Angeles model Katie May died suddenly last February her family, her friends and her social media fans were absolutely stunned. Ms. May was, after all, a 34-year-old in what appeared to be perfect health. But five days before she died, she tweeted out she was having neck pain after injuring herself during a photo shoot. She went to see a chiropractor, who is as yet unnamed.

That visit was on Friday, January 31. Two days later, on  Sunday, she told friends that she thought she should go back to the chiropractor the next day.

Within 24 hours she felt too dizzy to drive and her right hand started tingling – something that had never happened before. She was concerned enough to call her parents in Pennsylvania and tell them she was worried. They suggested she go to the hospital. Within three hours she was taken to Cedars Sinai ER by a friend, feeling more dizzy than ever.

Cedars Sinai medical staff tried multiple treatment procedures, but the patient lapsed into a coma and died 3 days later on February 4.

And now we know why. According to a copy of her death certificate, Katie May died several days after a “neck manipulation by a chiropractor.” L.A. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told the news media that a chiropractor had adjusted the victim’s neck, and that shifting of her neck vertebrae tore an artery on the left side of her spinal chord, which cut off normal blood flow to her brain. The official cause of death is “infarction of brain” and has been determined to be a medical treatment accident.

Katie May had also worked in public relations and marketing. She modeled for Sports Illustrated and Playboy Magazine. She had a seven-year-old daughter named Mia.
