The man is innocent. Your news paper with the local channel 35 and 46 are very quick to inform the public before the whole investigation. This man is 100% innocent, I had many massages before the acupuncture with him, his technique is gentle/respectful/japanese. This woman made up something that was not true.

Your news paper, channel 35 and 46 are horrible. Now the Doctor is dead due to all of you ruining his reputation.

It seems a bit unfair that "Jane Doe" is allowed to accuse freely without HER real name being public.

It is better that she is unknown. I don't want to know who could do something like this to someone. Especially someone as wonderful and beautiful as Daniel. He changed my life as well as my husband's and son's. We will miss him so much!

I saw Daniel Bagdadi a few years ago and had a wonderful experience. I'm unsure of what lead to the accusations against Him but I do know He was ALWAYS very kind,concerned and very caring professional Man. NEVER anything but Goodness. May He Rest in Peace and EVERYONE Remember that God Knows The Truth & God Will Judge & Deal with Him & His Accuser..

I know the accuser, she is a professional that I work with frequently; she did NOT make up the story, and the PD had him on tape admitting to what he did. I'm so glad you all think you know so much about this situation, it just shows how easily perverts can fool general public.
I knew him too

I don't know the situation with "Jane" other than she seemed to be very aggressive in her intention to take him to court. CaliRN believes through hear say that he was guilty. Suzan shares her own experience of him. I don't have enough information. And I wonder if he was guilty of touching, was it invited, or perhaps a misunderstanding? Could the accuser have been his willing lover? Or maybe he really was a pervert? Or maybe maybe maybe.
I only know my own experiences with him, and I hope we can let him rest in peace, and let "Jane" live her life in peace as well. THAT is one wish I know that D. Bagdadi would have had!

I am so sorry for both (the lady and Daniel) because she changed many lives. Daniel changed many peoples lives. His patients came before him. For example, He help me when I needed help. It makes me so sad that his life ended this way. As for the lady, well, I hope she was telling the truth becasue she hurt many people since Daniel won't be able to help us any more. I feel like crying because my doctor is gone.

Many of his class mates in Southern California are shocked at what has happened to Daniel. If someone can provide more information about his mysterious death please contact me.

El gurú de la medicina natural, el estadounidense Daniel Bagdadi quien fue hallado muerto en la habitación de un exclusivo hotel de Miraflores, habría muerto por una picadura de insecto y no por una sobredosis de pastillas como se presumía.
Según las primeras informaciones de investigación, el acupunturista perdió la vida debido a complicaciones de la picadura. Como se recuerda, Bagdadi era conocido por promover el consumo de las medicinas naturales a través de su página Web y tenía una denuncia por tocamientos indebidos.

CLC, I hope someone wouldn't be so stupid or unkind that they would share ANYONE's personal mailing address OR email address on a public forum! CLC, your sentiments are nice and hope you are able to tell her privately how you feel. My patient friend sent a note to his office.
