BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Police believe a body found in Buffalo, N.Y., is that of a trauma surgeon who was the subject of a nationwide manhunt after the killing of his ex-girlfriend at a hospital.
Police have been searching for 49-year-old Dr. Timothy Jorden since Wednesday morning, when 33-year-old Jacqueline Wisniewski was found shot to death in a stairwell at the Erie County Medical Center.
Jorden is a former special forces soldier.
The body was found Friday not far from Jorden's suburban home near Lake Erie.
Dennis Richards, Buffalo Police Department chief of detectives, says the man apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy is being conducted.
