Dyslexic Doctor Death

Jeremy Kohler, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch discovered the secret identity of Missouri's state executioner. And he sounds perfect for the job -- at least he sounds like he's been training for it his whole professional career.

Dr Alan R Doerhoff has:
  • Been banned from practicing in two hospitals in the state
  • Been charged with malpractice over 20 times
  • Received a public reprimand in 2003 by the state Board of Healing Arts
Like I said -- perfect for overseeing lethal injections since 1995 for the Missouri Department of Corrections.

Dr Doerhoff has testified in court that he is dyslexic. So he sometimes confuses names of drugs. Always something you want in a doc, huh? (Post-Dispatch, Photo: Post-Dispatch, HT: IRE)
