Updated: 4th Doctor (DO) Found Dead, Gunshot Wound to Head

Update: there is a 5th doctor now, see a timeline here

by Erin Elizabeth

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 (see links at bottom for that story)

It’s so hard for me breaking these stories as I feel for the friends .family and loved ones. I also have been with a well know outspoken Doctor of Osteopath myself for the last 6 years. We knew some of these doctors and it’s beyond tragic.

We are sorry to announce this news and that brings the total to 9 doctors missing or dead in less than a month. We have Dr. Bradstreet (who was also residing in Georgia but had previously been in Florida) who was found with a gunshot wound to his head. Dr. Bradstreet was an outspoken alternative MD well known in the Autism community. He’d helped many autistic children including his own child and was loved by many. It brought me no joy to break that story. 

Then Dr. Hedendal DC PhD (Harvard) found slumped over in his car. Though there was no accident. He’d come from an athletic event and was in perfect shape. He also had a radio show about anti aging and said in it he expected to live well beyond the average age of death for me (in their 70s) He was only in his mid 60s and very fit and healthy from all we know. His photos show a toned physique of an athlete. The third is Dr. Teresa Sievers who, just days ago, was found murdered in her home in Bonita Springs Florida. It brought me no joy to write the story about all three alternative doctors found dead in less than two weeks. It was also tough to announce that we also have 5 doctors gone missing in less than a month.

The past 3 were all prominent outspoken doctors. We do not know at this time whether Dr. Riley was as well.

Dr. Sievers’ case (the last to be found dead before Dr Riley) still has not been solved. In fact, the Sheriff who is leading the investigation said publicly (which has been in mainstream news) that she was definitely targeted. He also said that when the whole story comes out with all the intricacies that “books and movies will be made about her murder” as it’s such a huge story. We have no idea what that means nor proof that it is connected with the other deaths or 5 missing doctors all in a short span of time.

No one has been arrested at this time.

Here’s a quote from the breaking news article on Dr. Lisa Riley DO

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.

The husband is being held at the jail of an unrelated charge. So far he has not, nor anyone else, been charged with murder. Interesting the husband was charged with attempted murder before, held 2 years with no trial and in the end it was determined he was allegedly FRAMED and did not commit the attempted murder. All charges were then dropped. He’d already sat in a jail cell 2 years without a trial, but then was back to being a star in the boxing ring. Again residue was found on his ex’s hand but not on his. With this second VERY similar case- we cannot make a call on his wife’s death until an investigation is complete. It’s very tragic. His wife leaves behind their 9-month-old baby.
We will update you as we know more about the case.

Our heart goes out to the family and loved ones of all the doctors including Dr. Lisa Riley.
