On June 19th, Dr. Bradstreet in Georgia was found with a gunshot wound to his chest in a river. The small town locals ruled the death almost immediately as a suicide, but many have their doubts.
Over the last four months, it is very unfortunate to report that 13 very respectful holistic doctors are now dead. What is causing this trend? Could these devastating numbers be real, or is there some sort of mastermind behind this string of holistic doctor deaths?
#13: Tulsa Holistic Doctor, Doc Block
Dr. J.E. Block MD, PhD, FACP (aka “Doc Block”), married father of eight children and listed in the top 10 best Holistic doctors for the city of Tulsa on Yelp.com, allegedly jumped from the 20th floor of his Central Park West Apartment around 9:30 a.m.on Thursday, October 29th, 2015.
Some are claiming he previously committed medical fraud, however if the allegations were true, Dr. Block would have already lost his license. Even if this is true, would that be daunting enough to commit suicide?
From all the comments following his death, it’s easy to conclude that Dr. Block was truly a wonderful doctor that was not only a great family man of eight children, he was also highly respected by countless patients and fellow doctors across the nation.
