    I can’t find that Dr. Michael Belenky (now listed as a suspect in the other two murders associated with Creighton's Pathology Dept.) is still licensed in Alberta. Can anyone else? He didn’t maintain a license in Nebraska or Pennsylvania where he has previously practiced, but that’s not odd because he didn’t live there and licensing fees are hundreds of dollars. Not having a license currently in Alberta is odd. He last practiced in Calgary in 2011, so what happened to his license? Did it expire immediately after he was booted from his last job and he moved to another area requiring a different license? Was his license terminated in Calgary? Where is Michael Belenky now?

    It was stated in an article. I'll go through the history on my computer and find it.

    Every Internet article I reread from 2011 stated that detectives had not officially named Belenky as a suspect. Somewhere I read a more recent article which stated that Belenky was one of only 10 people that were questioned and possibly linked to Thomas Hunter's and Ms. Sherman's murder.

    The only thing I can find is that he was not considered a suspect or a person of interest in the murder of Thomas Hunter. He was interviewed in that case, but obviously police gotten nowhere.

    "Omaha homicide detectives interviewed Belenky about two years ago in Calgary. Omaha police said Belenky is one of at least 10 people they have looked at in connection with the stabbing deaths."

    I'm intrigued by the 'olive skinned' description of the possible perp in the Hunter case. Anyone have a picture of this Belenky fellow?

    NM - I found one with the Calgary article - he is most definitely NOT 'olive skinned'.

    I can't find a site to check if he was practicing on the Canadian equivalent of a H-1B visa. It's likely that he was and is a Russian citizen.

    Eyewitness memory is known to be fallible. We describe 3 experiments that aim to establish baseline performance for recognition of unfamiliar faces. In Experiment 1, viewers were shown live actors or photos (targets), and then immediately presented with arrays of 10 faces (test items). Asked whether the target was present among the test items, and if so to identify the person, participants showed poor performance levels (roughly 70% accurate). Furthermore, there was no difference between immediate memory for a live person and photograph. In Experiment 2, the same targets and test items were presented simultaneously, and participants were asked to perform a matching task. Again, performance was poor (roughly 68% accurate), with no difference between matching photos and live people. In the final experiment, viewers were asked to match a live person to a single photograph. Even under these conditions, performance was poor (c. 85%), with no advantage over matching 2 photographs. We suggest that problems of eyewitness identification may involve difficulties in initial encoding of unfamiliar faces, in addition to problems of memory for an event.

    Eyewitness misidentification is the single greatest cause of wrongful convictions nationwide, playing a role in nearly 75% of convictions overturned through DNA testing.

    Calgary police must have believed Belenky could become homicidal for some reason. They posted sheriffs at the Belenky's last employer 24/7, warned staff not to talk with him, discussed office and home safety plans with the pathologists with whom Belenky worked, and posted Belenky's photo at buildings with a "if you see him, immediately call this #.


    For about two weeks, sheriffs were posted at the office 24 hours a day in the city's northwest, while staff was told to have no communication with him.
    Police visited staff, including two medical examiners - Dr. Evan Matshes and Dr. Sam Andrews, who have since resigned largely citing a workload too heavy to be conducive to good work - to discuss safety plans both at work and at home.
    The office's security system is currently being upgraded.
    Justice spokesman David Dear said if "there were indeed any safety concerns," they would not comment on the issue.
    In at least one city dental office, a Calgary police poster with Belenky's photograph was posted, although police could not be reached to comment on why it was distributed.
    The written warning in part states "a male is currently under investigation for allegations of threats . we are advising as a precaution if you see this man please call 911."

    Witnesses talked about a dark-haired man, with a dark or olive complexion. He was seen walking up to the house in a dark suit, white shirt while carrying a satchel or briefcase over his shoulder.
    Lt. Kanger wants to make sure the public doesn't focus too much on the sketch. He wants us to consider the totality of the descriptions. "That’s tough to address…obviously we don’t have anyone in custody so I don’t know if it represents that individual or not. We’ve talked to the witnesses multiple times and at the time, there was a composite put out there. What we don’t want is the focus in the community to be solely on the composite drawing."

    The couples would travel together. Brumback would help Baltaro inspect labs, and their wives would join. They traveled to Canada and more recently, Japan.

    Did Dr. Brumback inspect the pathology lab/diagnoses where Dr. Belenky worked in Calgary? Was Dr. Brumback a consultant or prepared to be an expert witness against Dr. Belenky in Belenky’s upcoming malpractice trial?

    Regarding witnessing describing an "olive-skinned" man.
    Eyewitnesses are not always reliable.
    And suspect could have used a disguise.
    Just my opinion

    This is an interesting post including the statement from LE that LE has international sources working on this case.
