Lorich was the associate director of the Orthopedic Trauma Service at Hospital for Special Surgery and had many celebrity clients. In 2010, Dr. Lorich had been sent to Haiti and been a vocal critic of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s relief efforts on that island. Dr. Lorich was found dead in his bathroom in his Park Avenue home by his 11-year old daughter. He had a knife in his chest, and police immediately pronounced it a suicide. (source)
Dr. Lorich was found by his 11-year-old daughter on the bathroom floor of his tony Upper East Side apartment with a knife in his chest at around 1pm on Monday.
The knife missed the surgeon’s heart, leaving him to bleed out and be found by his daughter. Despite the fact police were called to the property regarding an “assault“, they instantly registered the death as “suicide” and closed the case.
One of the United States’ leading surgeons, Dr. Lorich was part of the relief effort sent by the U.S. to assist the relief effort led by the Clinton Foundation in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. However Dr. Lorich was disgusted by the “shameful” Clinton Foundation operation, and voiced his concerns to Hillary Clinton directly.
Unsatisfied with her response, he went public, writing an article published by CNN, accusing the Clinton Foundation of widespread corruption and malpractice in Haiti that cost the lives of thousands of children. (Source)
