    BBM: When you get the BILL, the physician is not specified, but when you get the REPORT from the medical record, it is definitely signed. It is part of the medical record, and a signature is REQUIRED.

    Police appear to be nowhere close to solving the first murder. So I am not sure what would be the point of concealing motive for the first murder-police don't appear to have a clue so they are confused as it is.

    Dr. Brumback was the secretary of the board. The minutes from the May meeting are not posted (possibly, they are being withheld?). But from other minutes I looked through, the board goes into 'closed session' when considering these matters (suspensions and the like) and the particulars are not found in the minutes what get posted online.

    It would be interesting to know Dr. Brumback's malpractice history, but it's possible that someone could have been very upset at one of Dr. Brumback's diagnosis and never filed a malpractice claim.

    Thanks for finding and posting that. Not knowing why Dr. Brumback was killed, the other board members have to be frightened. :(

    Did he actually see any patients as of late? He was a chairman of a department in an University.

    Cannot find any disciplinary action or malpractice claims, but I DID find out that the man was QUADRUPLE board-certified in Neuropathology,Anatomic Pathology,Pediatrics and Pediatric Neurology.

    That's impressive folks!

    Pathologists don't 'see patients'. They head up medical laboratories, pathology labs, and conduct autopsies. They look at tissue samples under a microscope and decide what type of pathology (cancer etc) is found in the sample submitted. Many pathologists in smaller counties serve as the coroner as well.

    Plus, from the chief's conference it's not really known if the cases are connected...he made a point of saying they will be looking into that and all possibilities are open..

    Belenky may have been punted from Creighton's pathology residency. Dr. Hunter and Dr. Brumback were the attending physicians (=made the decision to punt him). Belenky somehow found a forensic pathology fellowship through Allegheny General and the coroner's office in Pittsburgh and finished. He never passed his boards exams though.

    Because Hunter and Brumback were his attending physicians during his residency, they would be contacted as references by anyone inquiring about Belenky's competency/mental stability/work ethic and etc...

    The matching thing is unlikely - the retiring physician would probably not even be involved in the selection process. Creighton would not be considered a 'plum' assignment in the pathology world either- not bad, mind you, but certainly there are more attractive programs for an aggressive and driven new MD.

    HOWEVER, the Calgary pathologist who is referenced above..... that's an entirely plausible avenue of exploration. Good work finding those articles (even though the first one won't open for me)

    Few students graduating from med school can afford to go into primary care now. Their medical school loans total over $250,000. (My oldest is in med school now.) Any specialty is highly sought after because of their medical school loans and pathologists earn over $300,000+/year. Someone who chose Creighton Pathology first and didn't "match" for this might be very
    upset.

    Here is the reference for Belenky finishing his training at Allegheny County Coroner's Office. I can't tell if he was punted from Creighton or if he finished and Allegheny was only a fellowship after completing a basic pathology residency.

    So; here are the only three research articles I could find listing Belenky as co-author. All three are in the Journal of Comparative Neurology and a Gary E. Pickard is listed as co-author in all three.

    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/advanced/search/results?searchRowCriteria[0].queryString=%22Michael%20A.%20Belenky%22&searchRowCriteria[0].fieldName=author&start=1&resultsPerPage=20

    "Heterogeneous expression of γ-aminobutyric acid and γ-aminobutyric acid-associated receptors and transporters in the rat suprachiasmatic nucleus"

    "Subcellular distribution of 5-HT1b and 5-HT7 receptors in the mouse suprachiasmatic nucleus"

    "Melanopsin retinal ganglion cells receive bipolar and amacrine cell synapses"

    The first two appear to be possibly two articles derived from the same study and I'm not sure about the third.

    If you are suffering from insomnia- I HIGHLY recommend this journal for your bedtime reading! :)

    Maybe the veterinarian researcher sought out Dr. Belanky and not vice versa.

    I can't find any articles that state the police located Dr. Belenky after he left the lab in Canada. Can anyone else? Is he intentionally "missing"? That's scary. Maybe he returned to Russia?
