An Indiana doctor has been put in jail in southern Illinois without bond suspected of being involved in
the killings of three adults and an 11-year-old boy in Omaha.
say 40-year-old Dr. Anthony Garcia of Terre Haute, Ind., was arrested
Monday during a traffic stop in Illinois' Union County.
He's being held in neighboring Jackson
County on four counts of first-degree murder and
four counts of using a weapon to commit a felony in Nebraska.
Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer says Garcia has been linked
to the May slayings of Creighton University professor Roger Brumback and
his wife, Mary, as well as the 2008 stabbings of 11-year-old Thomas
Hunter and his family housekeeper, Shirlee Sherman.
Roger Brumback and Thomas
Hunter's father worked in Creighton's pathology department. They fired
Garcia for erratic behavior in 2001, when he was a pathology resident.
Schmaderer says Garcia appeared to be intoxicated and had a .45-caliber
handgun when he was arrested by Illinois State Police.
