Holistic Doctor and Entire Family Found Shot Dead in Arizona Home
Yet another holistic doctor has unfortunately passed away. The deaths of Annie Fairbanks, husband Jason Fairbanks, both 39 years old, their 3-year-old daughter, and 9-month-old son are shocking the natural health community.
They were killed by apparent gunshot wounds which police were quick to rule a murder, suicide. Sergeant Ben Hoster of the Scottsdale, Arizona Police Department spoke on behalf of the department. He told the press within hours of the shooting that Jason Fairbanks must have killed his wife and two children before turning the gun on himself.
Some reporters that have been keeping track of holistic doctor deaths over the past two years claim that this is well over the 70th death of an alternative health activist, journalist, or doctor.
From AZ Central:
“The two-story stucco home is in a quiet upper-middle-class neighborhood. Homemade art adorned one of the family’s windows.
When Jason did not show up to work, a co-worker went to the home and discovered the bodies, Hoster said.
Hoster said the couple had been experiencing financial struggles. The two owned a Scottsdale business, Macrotherapy, specializing in physical therapy and rehabilitation.
According to an event page, Annie Fairbanks was a Master CHEK Practitioner and a doctor of holistic nutrition.
Laura Fairbanks, Jason’s sister, described her older brother as a protector. She recalled a time when he was in college and flew home to drive her to school and calmly confront a boy who had been causing her problems. He then jumped back on a plane to school.
‘He loved his family so much,’ Laura Fairbanks said. ‘He wasn’t a bad person.’
She said he worked seven days a week to provide for his family. However, she knew that funds were not coming in like Jason needed them to.
Growing up, she said the two of them had a strong bond. Although he was a man of few words, she said she could always read between the lines and see how he was really feeling.
