Are the deaths of doctors related, connected and is the U.S. Government involved?
NO, Correlation is FALSE..current as of July 20th 2015
So you’ve probably seen an article by (The Free Project) and other non traditional news websites who make and/or suggest a correlation between the deaths of several doctors. It sounds highly suspicious and frightening. When the talk of government is involved conspiracy theories run rampant. So here are the facts. Did they die? Are the deaths and unknown whereabouts connected?
Title, Dead Yes/No, How, Source(s), Credible Source?, Confirmed?, etc
Dr. Teresa Sievers, Yes, bludgeoned with hammer, (source), (source), (source), (source), Yes, Yes, Possibly died June 29th
Dr. Baron Holt, Yes, Dead in his car/possibly aneurysm, (source), (source), (Source-No) Yes, No, Found June 21st, 2015
Dr. Patrick Fitzpatrick MD, Unknown, Missing/Vanished, (source), (source), Yes, Yes, He is missing.
Dr. Jeffrey Whiteside, Unknown, Missing/Vanished, (source), (source), (source), Yes, Yes, June 29th apparently, He is missing.
Lastly there’s this headline where 3 medical professionals went missing (here) and apparently found dead (here). The current source is The Daily Beast and it is the only source we could find. In addition 43 teacher teacher students are also missing in CHILPANCINGO, Mexico but this correlation is not made or purported by alternative news websites because it isn’t sensationalism. Therefore adding additional numbers or body-counts constitutes irresponsible journalism.
This story is largely being distributed by The Free Project and also by (here) and while the stories of these individuals are true we don’t consider either as a credible news source given past stories and facts that came to light. Either way most of the information in the individual news stories are in fact true. More importantly, the above information, deaths, causes of deaths, and numbers are irresponsibly mixed and thrown into a narrative that we see too often on the Internet; most of which is completely false.
For example, take the deaths of those who have red hair. Google or research by state deaths each month and you will find those who have passed by natural causes, murder, and/or suicide. Take the raw numbers of individuals who died and make a correlation by gender or demographic to come to a conclusion that the government is killing red-headed individuals by a certain age or by sex. That is how statistical interpretations become false realities.
FComments concludes after reading and viewing many news reports, videos, and accounts the correlations are a sweeping generalizations in lieu of actual evidence and factual findings from authorities. The primary sources are known for stirring up public paranoia. FComments also concludes you can choose any population and find events statistically related but not indicating conspiracy or common causation. The correlations are based on numerous interpretations and possible causes. This is a case of statistically random events which have a connection and correlation by location and profession.
