Indiana Doctor Accused Of Four Omaha Murders



OMAHA -- Omaha Police have linked a former Creighton University student to four unsolved deaths with ties to the medical school's pathology department. Chief Todd Schmaderer said 40-year-old Dr. Anthony Garcia was arrested Monday in Illinois. The suspect has been linked to both the May slayings of 65-year-old Roger Brumback and 65-year-old Mary Brumback and the 2008 stabbing deaths of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter and his family housekeeper, 57-year-old Shirlee Sherman. Both Roger Brumback and Thomas Hunter's father, Dr. William Hunter, worked in Creighton's pathology department. Schmaderer says Brumback and Hunter fired Garcia in 2001 when he was a pathology resident for erratic behavior.
