April 6, 2017
KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) – The death of a Ketchikan doctor remains under investigation after police learned that the friend who reported the doctor missing was accused of stealing money and valuable items from his home, authorities said.
Eric Garcia was reported missing March 27 by his 31-year-old friend, Jordan Joplin of Maple Valley, Washington.
He called police to say Garcia had not been seen for 10 days, the Ketchikan Daily News reported.
Police say they later heard from Garcia’s family members that a coin collection, watches and alcohol were missing from his home.
