The body of the missing surgeon sought in connection with the killing of his girlfriend at a Buffalo hospital has been found in a ravine near the surgeon’s home, reports WRGRZ-TV.
Timothy Jorden has been the subject of a massive manhunt when police sought him for questioning in regards to the fatal shooting of his girlfriend at the Erie County Medical Center. Jorden was considered armed and dangerous due to his experience as a former military weapons expert.
Police were searching the area near his home extensively after a neighbor reported hearing a gunshot near Jorden’s home about 90 minutes after the reported killing of his girlfriend at the medical center.
When the police arrived to the surgeon’s place of residence, an off-duty officer and a high school friend were seen coming out of Jorden’s home carrying $5,000 in cash and a Rolex watch in a story that is still developing in itself.
Authorities officially reported on Friday that they discovered the body of Timothy Jorden on the shore of an 18-mile ravine near his home. Police found the surgeon laying motionless, fully dressed in hospital scrubs with a single gun-shot wound to the head.
“It’s terrible,” said Tom Wrzosek, a neighbor of Jorden’s. “It’s a tragic situation. Nobody wins in a situation like this.”
According to NY Daily News, Jorden earned a medical degree from the University at Buffalo and trained at the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington.
In the months leading up the incident, colleagues reported that Jorden began acting very strange, even losing over 75 lbs in the process.
