“Dr. Forsyth has never missed a shift without notifying us in the past, so when he missed his scheduled shift and we were unable to reach him, we became concerned and alerted authorities,” the hospital said ahead of the news of his death. Richard echoed the hospital’s sentiment, telling the Daily Beast that he was completely out of character for his sister to miss work. “He wouldn’t miss a turn, even if his eyeballs were out of his sockets,” he said. “It was an immediate red flag.”


It is believed that the last person John was in contact with was his new fiancée, whom he texted around 7am. m. after he finished her shift to tell her that he would see her “a little later”. Then he suddenly stopped responding to her messages. She has not been identified. Video surveillance caught the doctor walking to her luxury mobile home, where he remained in the hospital parking lot during her shifts. Police later located his Infiniti about 700 feet from the entrance to the Cassville Aquatics Center in a yard waste chute.

Inside the vehicle, authorities found his passport, wallet and two phones, along with the keys to her RV and car. His VR was also unlocked, which Richard also called “very uncharacteristic.” Extensive searches of the 90-acre wooded area around where authorities discovered her car turned up empty.

According to his brother, the beloved doctor got engaged three days before his disappearance and several days after he finalized the divorce from his first wife. An uncontested divorce settlement was entered on May 11 that awarded his ex about $19,000 a month in alimony and child support, Richard said.Read More…..
