5th holistic doctor (age 33) died in Florida making 5 dead and 5 more missing
by Erin Elizabeth
Dr. Baron Holt (33 yrs of age) unexpectedly died on Father’s Day here on the East Coast of Florida. He died the same day another very fit chiropractor was found dead here on the East Coast of Florida. Both were fathers and chiropractors. Dr. Holt left behind a 3 year old daughter.
It brings me no joy to break all these stories on doctors who have died in a matter of weeks. The majority of whom were found dead in Florida. I read about Dr. Baron Holt DC not long after he died less than a month ago here on the East Coast of Florida. It was Father’s day June 21st. Dr. Holt was coincidentally found the very same day that Dr. Hedendal DC was found slumped over in his car. Both were chiropractors and fathers, both found dead on the E Coast of Florida, both on the same day. Father’s day. Our heart goes out to their loved ones and their children.
These two deaths of these fathers on Father’s day both in Florida, come 2 days after the death of Dr. Bradstreet MD who was found in a river in North Carolina with a gunshot wound to his chest. Previously Dr. Bradstreet had lived and practiced here on the East Coast of Florida as well. I hesitated covering the young Dr. Holt’s story as I had little information and didn’t feel comfortable as there were no recent articles I could reference.
From this glowing article just out a mere 48 hours ago which refers to Dr. Holt as the faithful healer:
His unexpected death last month while on a trip to Jacksonville, Fla. has been a blow to his family and the community he’d created through his work. Though he had been struggling with recent health issues, none were thought to be life threatening by loved ones. His family is awaiting the results from an autopsy report.
I had searched before for any information but saw no statement from the family. Now that I see this article states his family felt he had no health challenge that was life threatening at age 33, I felt I could write this piece. A few other verified chiropractors wrote me with a rather shocking cause of death, but the one I actually spoke with heard it through a colleague so I will not elaborate as it’s not verified nor appropriate to post. I’ll stand by quoting the well known News Observer instead which goes on to say:
Holt’s practice, Revolution Chiropractic, had just celebrated its fifth anniversary this year. Highly fit at 33, he was deeply connected to his Christian faith, and his career as a Triangle practitioner was booming.
Holt took a holistic approach to treatment; he and his staff taught classes on nutrition, exercise, even aromatherapy.
In 2012, he traveled to London to work with the U.S. Olympic team, and could count Ultimate Fighting Championship athletes among the 500 patients his practice saw each week, said Brigitte Spurgeon, friend and Revolution Chiropractic clinical director.
When I read that he was “highly fit” well accomplished, had traveled to London to work with the Olympic team and already emerging as a prominent natural chiropractor, I feel that it’s my duty to report on his sad untimely death whatever the cause.
Again, our hearts go out to his family, friends and loved ones and we hope they get to the bottom of this whatever the cause may be. Just to give you a timeline I’m going to write it out as follows:
#1 June 19th– Dr Bradstreet, formerly of Florida, now practicing in Georgia was found with a gunshot wound to his chest in a river. The small town locals ruled the death almost immediately as a suicide but many have their doubts. This same day in Mexico June 19th 3 doctors were traveling to the State Capital in Mexico to deliver some papers. This is the only case outside the US. They were reported missing that day. Authorities said they found the bodies, but the family says those bodies look nothing like their family members and are demanding more tests and proof . A sad but riveting article was written about those details here.
#2 June 21st– Father’s Day: We have two chiropractors (both reported to be fathers) in Florida, both on the East Coast both presumably healthy and both described as very fit . We still have no cause of death in the articles we can find on either one. A few people have contacted me about Dr. Hedendal, 67, but admit that they were surprised by his death and still find it shocking. I’ve been given a few causes of death but am not certain and even the friends telling me weren’t confident this was the case. Interestingly Dr. Holt (33) lived in North Carolina which is the state Dr. Bradstreet’s body (the first doctor to be found) was found 2 days prior. Dr. Holt was visiting Jacksonville,Florida though when he died. Dr. Bradstreet (see story #1) now lived in Georgia and before that neighboring state Florida.
#3 June 26th, Dr. Patrick Fitzpatrick MD goes missing. He was traveling from North Dakota to neighboring Montana (which he did often as his son lived in Montana) and his truck and trailer were found on the side of the road. Searches have expanded, but authorities say it’s like he vanished without a trace. He’s 6′ tall, described as Irish with a goatee and details can be found on the links.
#4 June 29th– The beloved holistic Theresa Sievers MD was found murdered in her home. Her co worker says she was known as the “Mother Teresa of South Florida. Her husband and children were in Connecticut at a family reunion. The authorities have been investigating for two weeks “around the clock” and now say that it was targeted, not random, not a home invasion ,and when the facts come out “books and movies will be written about it” it’s that huge of a story. On this very same day, June 29th, Jeffrey Whiteside MD a pulmonologist went missing , vanishing when he simply “walked away” . Dr Whiteside, known for his successful treatment of lung cancer, disappeared in Door County Wisconsin while vacationing with family. They say he was on foot and had no vehicle and numerous reports call it “mysterious” saying he too vanished without a trace. They’ve been searching now 2 weeks and even colleagues have joined in (along with many bloodhounds, drones search parties and helicopters) but not a shred of evidence in 2 weeks.
#5 July 1oth– Lisa Riley DO (Doctor of Osteopathic medicine) is found in her home with a gunshot wound to her head. Her husband called it in to 911 and has a prior record, and actually was charged with attempted murder on his ex Ms. King, before charges were eventually dropped. Evidence showed that there was gun residue was found on Ms. King’s hand and not Mr Riley’s and his story collaborated but hers allegedly didn’t and kept changing. At least that’s what evidence showed at the time. (click link in this paragraph for their story with details on all of this)
We hope all 5 missing doctors are found alive and well. Our hearts go out to the other 5 doctors who were found dead and we hope they get to the bottom of each one and find the killer or killers soon of those who were indeed murdered.
This is Erin Elizabeth July 14, 2015. still concerned for my own better half of years who is a prominent outspoken holistic DO himself.
