Indiana Doctor Arrested in Four Omaha Murders, Cops Allege He Has “Serial Killer” Profile
Photo Credit: APAn Indiana doctor was arrested Monday in connection with the unsolved killings of four people, including an 11-year-old boy, who all had ties to the Nebraska medical school he had attended before being fired.
Omaha authorities say 40-year-old Dr. Anthony Garcia is suspected in the May deaths of Creighton University professor Roger Brumback and his wife, Mary, as well as the 2008 stabbing deaths of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter and his family housekeeper, Shirlee Sherman.
Roger Brumback and Thomas Hunter’s father worked in Creighton’s medical school pathology department and the men had fired Garcia for erratic behavior in 2001, when he was a pathology resident, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said.
The murders of Thomas Hunter and Sherman at the Hunter family’s 3,700-square-foot home in Dundee were featured last year on “America’s Most Wanted,” and a $54,000 reward was offered for information.
Schmaderer tells Fox 42 that a special task force was created last year after investigators discovered Garcia had been in Omaha during all four of the murders, and the task force has been monitoring him for an unspecified amount of time.
