An autopsy has been ordered even though the sheriff does not suspect foul play, but we’ve seen this before and know that often times the authorities and families of the deceased change their minds.

According to the sheriff, 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.1

Noble County Sheriff, Robert Pickenpaugh, reported that the county Coroner Dr. Alan Spencer ordered the autopsy and the final results could take six to eight weeks to receive.

Amongst many other qualifications, Dr. Starr earned National Board Certification from the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. (Dr. Mercola has earned the same certification amongst other osteopaths.)

Dr. Starr’s specialties were as follows, according to

  • Family Medicine
  • Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine

It is rare that osteopaths specialize in neuromusculosketetal medicine, especially doctors as young as Dr. Starr. I have to travel several hours to a DO who has this specialty.

Our heart goes out to his family and friends.

We will update you with more information as it becomes available and once his autopsy results are released.
