Another day in the life of a rich man, doing as he pleases and getting by with it.

I wonder if he has molested children around here too? It's no wonder that he was "shy" of the media!

Sounds like he has been able to escape justice for a long time for the things he has done to others.

Time to pay the piper!

Wonder why he didn't have to register as a sex offender?

He did not have to register because he did a plea deal - "not guilty" in exchange for his MD License. Sad how those with enough money and attorney's can get away with that. Bet it would not happen today though! No telling what he has left in his wake since, all over the world. Seems to be alot of damage left on the roads that he has traveled on.

Maybe one of his victims burned the place down.

Amen..C-T thanks for more info on Buddy Thompson's efforts. He is the consummate professional who has the determination and experience to pursue this investigation to a just conclusion. Real life vs. drama it takes more than a couple of hours to solve a crime, although according to your coverage this story is made for TV.

Every person who has ever met that man is a victim in one way or another. That's quite a list of suspects.

So there seems to be little doubt that the owner torched the place, it's just a matter of the evidence being able to prove it. Certainly a shady character.

So a medical license in this state is two fold. Pratice medicine and a get out of jail free card. Do ya think the judge and DA got paid off? How much does it cost to rape a child and walk?
