Acclaimed Surgeon Found Dead With A Knife In His Torso

Although investigators have not found a suicide note, they have not found any signs of forced entry into his apartment. 

Lorich’s 11-year-old daughter found him on the bathroom floor and ran downstairs to tell her mother who called 911. When police responded to the call on Sunday, Lorich was found unresponsive and was pronounced dead by the EMT team. 

The hospitals where Lorich worked announced a statement yesterday:

“Dr. Lorich was a distinguished orthopedic trauma surgeon and teacher serving at Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian, and Weill Cornell Medicine. We mourn this tragic development and extend our deepest sympathies to Dr. Lorich’s family, friends, and patients,” the statement said.
