Concealing the Cause and Manner of Death
A spectacular case of forensic medical corruption
By JOHN LEAKE
In July of 2021, Dr. McCullough and I met for dinner here in Dallas to discuss writing a book together about the COVID-19 pandemic response with a focus on the suppression of early treatment. In our first conversation, I told him that, in my estimation, the book we were contemplating lies squarely within the true crime genre.
Since our book—The Courage to Face COVID-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death While Battling the Bio-Pharmaceutical Complex—was published last year, many have asked me why I—a true crime author—became interested in writing a book about the pandemic response.
The genesis, I believe, is my longstanding interest in forensic medicine—that is, the branch of medicine devoted to determining the cause and manner of death. Forensic doctors are entrusted with an enormous responsibility, because they have the training and legal authorization to ascertain what kills people. If they do their job properly, they can provide an invaluable service to protecting society from dangers that most people are not in a position to detect.
We often think of forensic pathologists as chiefly concerned with cases of death in which foul play is suspected. While this is indeed an important and dramatic component of their work, it’s just one part of it. Forensic pathologists can also shed light on novel or poorly understood illnesses, the precise causes of fatal accidents, evidence of fatalities resulting from negligence, dangerous products, and medical malpractice.
Since the COVID-19 vaccines rolled out, we have witnessed a remarkable lack of curiosity on the part of the forensic medical profession about what is causing the dramatic increase of unexpected deaths in relatively young people. In a recent conversation with the indefatigable Steve Kirsch, I suggested that final clarity about what is causing these suspicious deaths could be attained if all such sudden and unexpected deaths were properly investigated with autopsies, performed by pathologists who are directed to look for evidence of COVID-19 vaccine injuries. You won’t find something if you don’t look for it.
This morning here in Dallas, an old friend is being admitted to surgery to repair terrible leg and foot fractures caused by a mountain biking crash in Whistler, British Columbia. Looking at the X-Rays of his broken lower leg and foot reminded me of a terrible mystery that I investigated a decade ago.
Duncan MacPherson was a Canadian professional hockey player who disappeared in the Austrian Alps near Innsbruck in the summer of 1989. Over twenty years later—through the tireless efforts of his heroic parents and my own investigation and analysis (with the help of independent forensic experts)—we ascertained the true cause and manner of his death.
The most notable thing about the story is that the cause and manner of his Duncan’s COULD have been quickly ascertained right after his body was found in 2003, but for reasons that I present in my book, the truth was ruthlessly and systematically concealed.

Those interested in true forensic mysteries will also be intrigued by my detailed presentation of evidence of the true cause and manner of Duncan’s death.
