A termination letter explains why Anthony Garcia was fired from Creighton more than a decade ago.

Written by the Associate Dean, but copied to Dr. Roger Brumback, who was murdered in May with his wife, Mary.

Under Brumback's name in the letter was Dr. William Hunter. Hunter's his son Thomas and housekeeper Shirlee Sherman were murdered in 2008.

The letter outlines unacceptable actions taken by Garcia. The letter said, Garcia placed a phone call to a fellow resident's home telling his wife he needed to come back to the Pathology Department. But that resident was taking his USMLE exam, an exam that will determine whether or not he will be able to practice as a doctor.

A local doctor said it's something every medical grad has to take.

"In order to secure licensing before practicing medicine, in any state of the country," said Dr. Gamini Soori, Medical Oncology & Hematology.

The letter states, Garcia's call caused the resident and the resident's wife serious anxiety.

"It is a very stressful test," said Dr. Soori.

In an application to practice medicine in Indiana, Garcia gives his side of the story stating, "I was essentially fired from Creighton Medical Pathology Residency when I worked there because I called a Pathology resident and told him his vacation was not approved."

In the letter, Garcia was given time to appeal his termination. Garcia put in an appeal, but the ruling was upheld by the Dean of the School of Medicine.

A statement from Creighton officials said they will not be commenting further on the termination.
