Sadly, there may be a dark side to this story--

Dead 49ers Doctor and Stanford Researcher Was Being Investigated:

Stanford officials say they were made aware of the possible criminal activity and alerted law enforcement.

Dr. Daniel Garza was being investigated by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department for alleged inappropriate behavior involving adult interns, sources say.

His cause of death has been listed as unknown in three different newspapers. Very strange. Could it have been that the coroner was trying to decide if it was suicide or natural causes or foul play?

Stanford knew about this guy well before last September. Funny how the story died so quickly
