Doctor dies in chimney trying to break into boyfriend's home

Another dumb ass....this time a doctor.


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- A doctor involved in an "on-again, off-again" relationship apparently tried to force her way into her boyfriend's home by sliding down the chimney, police said Tuesday. Her decomposing body was found there three days later.

Dr. Jacquelyn Kotarac, 49, first tried to get into the house with a shovel, then climbed a ladder to the roof last Wednesday night, removed the chimney cap and slid feet first down the flue, Bakersfield police Sgt. Mary DeGeare said.

While she was trying to break in, the man she was pursuing escaped unnoticed from another exit "to avoid a confrontation," authorities said.

DeGeare said the two were in an "on-again, off-again" relationship.

The man's identity was not revealed by police, but the man who resides in the home is William Moodie, 58.

"She made an unbelievable error in judgment and nobody understands why, and unfortunately she's passed away," Moodie told The Associated Press. "She had her issues – she had her demons – but I never lost my respect for her."

Reached by telephone, Moodie did not dispute the police's characterization of his relationship with Kotarac. He would not comment on the circumstances that led to her death, saying it was more important to focus on the good she did in life.

Moodie, who runs an engineering consulting firm, said Kotarac was a superb internist who often provided service and medication free of charge to her patients.

Kotarac apparently died in the chimney, but her body was not discovered until a house-sitter noticed a stench and fluids coming from the fireplace Saturday, according to a police statement. The house-sitter and her son investigated with a flashlight and found Kotarac dead, wedged about two feet above the top of the interior fireplace opening.
Firefighters spent five hours late Saturday dismantling the chimney and flue from outside the home to extract Kotarac's body, DeGeare said.

Officials said Kotarac's office staff reported her missing two days prior when she failed to show for work. Her car and belongings remained near the man's house.

A cause of death has not been determined, and an autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday. Foul play is not suspected, though investigators have been looking into the incident as suspicious.

This just proves that no matter how much education, a person may have, you can not take the stupid out of people.

This just proves that in Bakersfield, even the most educated people are fucking idiots.

So what did she break her neck or puncture something? Could you suffocate in there? I imagine she wasn't able to yell for help for whatever reason.

Re: Doctor dies in chimney trying to break into boyfriend's home

So her boyfriend realizes she is trying to break-in, and then just runs away? Why didn't he call the police? Sounds a little fishy to me...

That was my thought. Most likely he killed her and built a chimney around her.

Think Fatal Attraction. Remember crazy Glenn Close with scissors?

He took the advice of Brave Sir Robin to "run away, run away!"

I don't have a problem with him running away to avoid a confrontation, but I'm not sure why it never dawned on him to call the police after the fact.

You can't hit a woman back, and shooting someone you are fucking looks even more fishy, so yeah, just run.

Laugh it up. If this was a puppy, and not a Doctor, we would be on page 3 with all the outrage.

Puppies have better sense than to get stuck in a chimney.
