Posts Tagged ‘Suspicious Death’

This has been a tragic few weeks and our hearts go out to family and friends of the doctors.   First we had controversial Autism researcher Dr. Jeff Bradstreet MD who was found in a river with a gunshot wound to his chest on June 19th.  His friends and family started a memorial page on June 20th in his honor on Facebook. I waited 3 days after that to report the story out of respect. A few still write that I shouldn’t cover these stories, but  I am a journalist, and as I’ve repeatedly said, it brought me no joy to report the news. I waited until all were covered by mainstream news and or funeral sites.  Dr. Bradstreet  had lived just 45 minutes from us here in Florida. I also have been with a prominent very well known doctor and public figure for the last 6 years so it concerns me. Several  prominent MD’s have contacted me these last 2 weeks who are also concerned.

Then we have Dr. Bruce Hedendal DC PhD  who died suddenly on Father’s day. Sources tell me that he was found in his car and had died but the car was not running. There was no car accident they say. He was just in his car. Deceased. He had exercised earlier in the day they tell me and was in top shape. In addition to being a DC, he  had his PhD in nutrition from Harvard.  Many say he was a “pillar of health”.  These sources didn’t know the cause of death. Not sure if anyone knows yet. Dr. Bradstreet’s case is still under investigation. We’re not sure about Dr. Hedendal. Both had dealt with run ins with the feds in the past.  In fact, Dr. Bradstreet’s office was just raided by the feds days before he died.

Now we have the beautiful intelligent Teresa Ann Sievers MD here in Florida. Her bio on her website talk about her many accomplishments and degrees as a medical doctor who believed in a holistic alternative approach.  She lived in an “upscale” nice neighborhood where neighbors said they rarely, if ever had problems.

A controversial vaccine and autism researcher’s body, Dr. James Bradstreet, was found in a river near the town of Chimney Rock, NC. Local police announced the death as a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest due to the weapon found with the body.

However, the family is suspecting foul play and has setup a gofundme to help fray the costs of the investigation. The family has also setup a Facebook memorial page.

Multiple law enforcement officials said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration searched Bradstreet Wellness Center last week two days before his death. On Monday, plastic sheets covered the windows of the two suites the office takes up in a complex off Commerce Drive, and the doors were locked.

Dr. Bradstreet had published some controversial autism research, which implicated vaccines in the causation of autism, in the journal Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. His research had concluded that autistic children have a higher body burden of mercury, as well as that three autistic children have measles virus RNA in their cerebrospinal fluid.

On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan awarded compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism. (See the Italian document here)  A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boy’s permanent autism and brain damage.  While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent.
