Neuropathologist Roger Brumback found murdered in his home
Neuropathologist Roger Brumback, 65, and his wife were found murdered in their Nebraska home on Tuesday. Dr. Brumback, an active member of the neuropathology community, was the former chair of pathology at Creighton University in Omaha.
The bodies of Dr. Brumback and his wife, Mary, were discovered by a piano mover who had arrived at their home to find the front door ajar.
In addition to his work as a neuropathologist, Dr. Brumback was a clinical pediatric neurologist and was the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Child Neurology. At a memorial held at Creighton in his honor, medical students described Brumback as a kind and caring man who was devoted to teaching.
Police are looking at any link between this killing and that of the son of another Creighton pathologist back in 2008. There have been no arrests in either case.
