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.
