Dr. Tony Starr, an Osteopath doctor, is the latest to be listed in a long list of holistic doctors who have died mysteriously in the past couple of years.

Starr was found dead in his Caldwell, Ohio home on December 13, 2017 when he failed to respond to texts and phone calls. reports:

Dr. Tony Starr was pronounced dead at the residence where he was found by friends after he failed to respond to text and telephone messages, according to Noble County Sheriff Robert Pickenpaugh.

The sheriff reported no foul play is suspected.

The autopsy was reportedly ordered to determine the cause of death for 52-year-old doctor.

According to Pickenpaugh, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the residence at approximately 2:16 p.m. Saturday after the discovery of Starr’s body. United Ambulance was also requested at the residence in the village.

Noble County Coroner Dr. Alan Spencer ordered the autopsy, according to Pickenpaugh. The final results could take six to eight weeks to receive.

In reporting on his death, Health Nut News journalist Erin Elizabeth recounted that he is the 83rd doctor in the past couple of years to have mysteriously died.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the death of the 83rd doctor in my unintended holistic doctor death series,” she wrote.  “Dr. Tony Starr, an Osteopath, aged 52, was pronounced dead at the residence where he was found by friends after he failed to respond to text and telephone messages. He leaves behind his wife and children.”

She also referenced the autopsy and thought the sheriff doesn’t suspect foul play, Elizabeth commented, “we’ve seen this before and know that often times the authorities and families of the deceased change their minds.”

Indeed, we have.  Hopefully, this is not foul play, though for Starr to die at 52 is still a tragedy.

While attending there, he was a standout basketball player for all 4 years contributing to the team that participated in the state tournament.
