TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Terre Haute resident Dr. Anthony Joseph Garcia suspected of murdering four people in Omaha, Nebraska. The question on many people's minds: Why did he do it?
Four murders, five years apart. How did the first two deaths in 2008 tie into the most recent pair of killings in Omaha early this spring?
According to Nebraska police if you follow Dr. Anthony Garcia's checkered past you find the answer.
News 10's producing staff spent much of the Tuesday going through medical license records to find out more about Dr. Garcia.
What we found was that he had a history of erratic behavior that led to his removal from several medical residency programs across America.
He moved to Albany, New York in 1999 to do his residency after medical school. But on one application he said he was asked to resign after an incident in which he displayed inappropriate conduct in the radiology department.
It was this resignation that brought him to Omaha, Nebraska. In 2000, He began a residency in the pathology department of Creighton University's Medical Center that lasted a little over a year.
But, he was terminated when he attempted to sabotage a colleague, while that resident was taking an important exam; that coupled with a continued display of what his instructors called 'erratic behavior.'
The two pathologists in charge of the program were Dr. Roger Brumback and Dr. William Hunter.
In 2008, Dr. Hunter's 11 year old son, Thomas Hunter was found murdered along with the Hunter's maid Shirlee Sherman.
At that time, Garcia was coming off two other stops for residency.
The first at University of Illinois Chicago (Between 2001 and 2003) and the second residency was (2008) at Louisiana State University's psychiatry residency program. He lasted less than a year at LSU.
The next few years brought Garcia to Indiana and eventually to Terre Haute. He lived quietly since 2012 on Greywing court.
Until police say in May of this year when they believe he drove back to Omaha, Nebraska and murdered Dr. Roger Brumback and Brumback's wife Mary. Records indicate that Dr. Brumback was the man who formally removed him from his residency at Creighton University in 2001.
Which is why police believe the main motive behind these four deaths is revenge.
