That s all folks....its a shame that one dealer died so that another can make a living doing it too....hopefully all the dealers swarming iaeger will go down as doc did......

You don't know what the hell you are talking about. Any misuse of drugs that went on in the Whitley Clinic went on behind Doc's back. He was a excellent doctor and helped out many in the town of Iaeger. He was a helpless man in a wheelchair, who cared about life and people, who was murdered in his own home. He didn't deserve to die.

Sorry to say you know don't what you are talking about! Doc dealt drugs for many years way back in the 70's he was the biggest dealer around same time as he was fighting dogs in pits. He went into old age doing the same thing and him becoming crippled is his punishment this side of eternity, I just hate to see what he got on the other side, if he didn't get to say a last prayer. I hope he had time to ask for forgiveness. But no matter what he did he did not deserve to die by someone else's hands. So they deserve to get what's coming to them from the law. But it needs to be justice and not the same kind of justice thats handed out to crooked past servants of the law. You know some of you are right about your opinions about McDowell Co. some can kill someone and get by with it, you can hold a county position and steal only to get your hands smacked and a new county job. You can murder and they can't even get you to court. What happen to this county? It was a wonderful place to grow up, what happen?

Accelerants were definitley found at the fire scene by the Federal Fire Marshalls. What you are referring to is vague information from an insurance inspector/adjuster.
And yes, I do know what killed him and yes, I did see the full autopsy report.
Did you?
I think you must be one of docs children. You seem to know a lot about the murder.Are you? Hope everything works out the way it should. God Bless

I agree it's ashamed that Doc was murdered and I feel bad for his family. But for everyone to say what a great person he was in this community let's the rest of the world see how blind we are in this neck of the woods. Just because he gave any drughead in the county a fix and called it a prescription doesn't make him a saint. He was still just another drug dealer, only he was a drug dealer disquised as a doctor. Doc got more people hooked on drugs in this county legally than the Headen twins have illegally. Most the Headen's clients got started by our dear Dr. Whitley.

Im going to have to agree with Doc should have never been murdered, no'one deserves to die at another ones hands as such, And I dont have any comment on who did it, Cause I have no ideal what the facts are!
But I do know this and I think many in Mcdowell do
Doc was involved in many things in his life and everyone knows it, sorry I no he is gone and it most likely upsets alot of people, But dying doesnt change that he wasnt a SAINT

I never claimed Dr. Whitley was a saint. But he was a good man. Don't forget, Dr. Whitley was in a wheelchair the last 5 years of his life. His involvement with the clinic took a dramamtic decline after his "accident". On the other hand, Kathy's involvement picked up dramatically. Granted he was still the physician but he worked very sporadically. You can thank Kathy for the illegal prescriptions. She was the drug dealer disguised as a doctor. The fact that Dr. Whitley was trying to shut down the little "side business" was what got him killed.

Are you stupid? Doc knew everything that went on at the clinic. all the prescriptions were oked by Doc, he even called presciptions in for people. It would take me two or three days to get my medication, because Doc had to approve it. As far as Kathy she only did what DOC said to do. Also the other people that worked there wrote out prescription under DOC'S approval.
