Accused serial killer, Dr. Anthony Garcia, tells WOWT 6 News he will be set free. That opinion was delivered in a letter Garcia sent to us.
Since Nebraska doesn't allow cameras in courtrooms, we've only heard a few words from Garcia in one of his early appearances in an Illinois courtroom, until now.
In the letter to WOWT 6 News Garcia stated that a jury will ultimately set him free.
In the past few months, the state has painted a picture of Dr. Anthony Garcia as someone who methodically targeted and tracked those who fired him from the Creighton Pathology Department in 2001. In 2008, Dr. William Hunter’s son Thomas and the family housekeeper, Shirlee Sherman, were stabbed dozens of times in the Hunters’ Dundee home.
Five years later, Dr. Roger Brumback had been shot and killed; his wife Mary, stabbed to death.
Hours earlier, investigators allege that Garcia tried to break into another Creighton doctor's home.
Last week, Dr. Garcia, also known as Inmate Number 3320471, wrote a letter to WOWT 6 News. Reporter Joe Chiodo had asked for an interview.
Anthony Garcia declined our request but he wrote, "When I go free, I plan to tell my story to "60 Minutes" for millions. My attorneys and I were talking, we're going to kick their ass. You can print that."
We showed the letter to Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer who said, “I really don't have a reaction to it. This case is pending trial and I'm very comfortable with what my investigators have done."
The police chief is confident Dr. Garcia is their man. Now it's up to the state to prove it.
Garcia is due back in court the first week of December.
